I hunger and I thirst

I hunger and I thirst;
Jesus, my manna be!  
O living waters, burst out of the rock for me!

O bruised and broken Bread,
my lifelong needs supply.  
As living souls are fed, so feed me, or I die.

O true life-giving Vine,
let me your goodness prove.  
By your life sweeten mine, refresh my soul with love.

Rough paths my feet have trod
since first their course began.  
Renew me, Bread of God, restore me, Son of Man.

For still the desert lies
behind me and before:  
O living waters, rise within me evermore!
