As the Deer Runs to the River

As the Deer Runs to the River

1 As the deer runs to the river,
parched and weary from the chase,
we have come from hurt and hurry,
thirsting for your healing grace.

Refrain
Jesus, source of living water,
may we drink of you and live!

2 When your Israel crossed the desert
where no stream or spring was seen,
Moses struck the rock, and water
flowed for them, refreshing, clean. Refrain

3 “Come and drink,” Isaiah summoned,
“all who for God’s mercy plead!
God’s forgiveness, like a fountain,
flows to satisfy your need.” Refrain

4 Christ, we come from desert places,
deepest thirst unsatisfied.
Lead us to the waters flowing
from the cross on which you died. Refrain
