2826. I Hunger and I Thirst

1. I hunger and I thirst,
Jesu, my manna be;
Ye living waters, burst
Out of the rock for me.

2. Thou bruised and broken Bread,
My life-long wants supply;
As living souls are fed,
O feed me, or I die.

3. Thou true life-giving Vine,
Let me Thy sweetness prove;
Renew my life with Thine,
Refresh my soul with love.

4. Rough paths my feet have trod
Since first their course began;
Feed me, Thou Bread of God;
Help me, Thou Son of Man.

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