Refresh My Thirsty Soul

Refresh my Thirsty Soul
By C.E. Hodgson


You refresh my thirsty soul
You bring me up from my despair
Sow joyful tears to my hardened heart
All the while whispering I care

This feeling, like no other
You bring me to your light
I don’t know how I understand
But this feeling is simply right

Jesus a name so wonderful
Left heaven for my eternal life
Kisses my brow in sorrow
As I tarry through earthly strife

I may turn my back
Forget you for a little while
When I turn to face you
You meet me with a smile

Gentle arm embrace
This weathered earthly child
Bring me back to your hold
So tender merciful mild
