1.  I hunger and I thirst;

Jesus, 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 live-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!
