River Of Love
By June Stein
The river of love from Christ is wide
To nourish and fill the soul,
And in that endless stream of love
The water of life, renews, makes whole.
Before God we kneel in humble prayer
And ask Him to give us light,
To share with other thirsty souls
The river of love, we find in Christ.
The touch of His love is ours each day
As we reach to Christ in heart,
And look to Him to find the way
To be in this world, yet set apart.
The water and blood which flowed from Christ
Upon the cross when He died,
Is all our claim to saving grace
The grace that instills new life in Christ!
‘Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.
Indeed, the water I give him will become in him
a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’
‘One of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear,
bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.’
