"I THIRST"

His arms nailed to the Cross;
His heart bleeding for you…
His soul grieving for you…
He whispered "I thirst".

"I thirst – for you, My child;
Wandering in the wilderness,
Lost in the realm of this world-
Return to My fold…

"I thirst - for your salvation;
And, forgiveness of your sins.
It's burden heavy on Me-
I long to set you free…

"I thirst – for your love;
Love none other, but Me.
Just 'cos I loved you first-
And yearn to hold you to My breast...

"I thirst – for your trust;
And, your complete surrender.
Casting your cares on Me –
For My yoke is easy – and My burden light".

Very touching. Great piece indeed.

Dr. Thomas, I would love to use this poem on another site I post on. A few of us are doing a series on "Meditations on the Cross of Christ", and I might want to put it together into a book. It seems to be turning out quite lovely. If interested, please go to: http://www.christianity.com Then go over to the forums section on the left and click on forums. Then scroll down to Writer's roundtable and look for my posting name "Beloved of God". Then click on Meditations on the Cross of Christ and you will see where we are posting. We are going to be doing this until Easter. PLEASE??? It is a very large website. Blessings to you and your family!!!

Heart-touching and thought provoking. If we only knew how much He thirsts for communion with his children, "we" would never try to satisfy our own thirst elsewhere!
