I Hunger and I Thirst

I hunger and I thirst;
Jesus my manna be:
Ye living waters burst
Out of the rock for me.

Thou bruised and broken bread,
My lifelong wants supply;
As living souls are fed,
Oh, feed me, or I die.

Thous true life-giving vine,
Let me thy sweetness prove;
Renew my life with thine;
Refresh my soul with love.

Since first discourse began,
Rough paths my feet have trod.
Feed me, thou living bread;
Help me, thou Son of God.

For still the desert lies
My thirsting soul before;
O living waters, rise
Within me evermore.
