Waterless Wilderness

"O God, Thou art my God; early will I seek Thee: my soul thirsteth for Thee, my flesh longeth for Thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is" (Psalm 63:1).  "His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness… whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises… We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts" (2 Peter 1:3,4,19). 

We journey through a wilderness
Where every well we find is dry,
Where all the land is waterless,
And thirsty souls are left to die. 

Yet in this dry and barren land
By sin and by corruption cursed,
Our Lord has made us understand
That He will satisfy our thirst.

His precious promises we find  
Are fountains of sustaining grace,
And prophecies fulfilled have shined
With light in every darkened place. 

Lord, in this wilderness we know
Where we can find Your wells of love. 
This land is waterless below;
We drink from living springs above.
