As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for Thee, O God,
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God?
The afflicted and needy are seeking water, but there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst; I, the Lord, will answer them Myself, as God of Israel I will not forsake them. I will open rivers on bare heights, and springs in the midst of valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land a fountain of water.
Jesus said, “Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.
…my cup overflows…
I am the Living Water. As I pour Myself into you, you will be con- tinually cleansed and purified. I long to revive, refresh, and renew your strength by washing you with My Word. Do you thirst for Me? Then go to the fountain that never runs dry.
