SermonIndex.net : Christian Books : Holy Week 156. His are the thousand sparkling rills

The Hymnal Of The Protestant Episcopal Church In The Usa by Various

Holy Week 156. His are the thousand sparkling rills

8.8.8.6

Isleworth:

Samuel Howard (1710-1782)

Cecil Frances Alexander, 1875

His are the thousand sparkling rills

That from a thousand fountains burst,

And fill with music all the hills;

And yet he saith, |I thirst.|

All fiery pangs on battlefields,

On fever beds where sick men toss,

Are in that human cry he yields

To anguish on the cross.

But more than pains that racked him then

Was the deep longing thirst divine

That thirsted for the souls of men:

Dear Lord! and one was mine.

O Love most patient, give me grace;

Make all my soul athirst for thee;

That parched dry lip, that fading face,

That thirst, were all for me.

Amen.
