(Romanos and Adam -option B)
“I Thirst No More”
- Christ cried, “I thirst!”
His breath exhaled true love.
- His cry broke the curse,
Bringing new life from above.
- Thirst will you no longer,
In Christ you’re forever stronger.
- Angels, man today unite,
peace wins, put down the fight.
- Cry you no more.
Thirst you no more.
Desert waters flow.
- The Hebrew people did thirst,
in the desert “mercy” was their cry.
From the rock waters burst,
their hope in Yahweh, never to die.
- Mortals who see no hope,
thirst for God’s mercy.
Humanity who suffer and grope
cling to Christ’s victory.
- In Christ you thirst no more,
the Cross wrought the winning score.
The vice of death no longer,
the Paschal Lamb ever stronger.
- The resurrection of the Eternal Word,
Everlasting, Life-giving Waters out poured.
The prince of iniquity conquered,
True Love and Justice restored.
- Salvation comes to us today,
all heaven and Earth unite— so may
the Waters of Life forever flow,
inducing love, I thirst no more.
