Isaiah 55:1–3 (Listen)

The Compassion of the Lord


55:1   “Come, everyone who thirsts,
    come to the waters;
  and he who has no money,
    come, buy and eat!
  Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without price.
  Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,
    and your labor for that which does not satisfy?
  Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,
    and delight yourselves in rich food.
  Incline your ear, and come to me;
    hear, that your soul may live;
  and I will make with you an everlasting covenant,
    my steadfast, sure love for David.

(ESV)

3. Lord, Thy words are waters living 
Where I quench my thirsty need; 
Lord, Thy words are bread life-giving, 
On Thy words my Soul doth feed. 
Lord, Thy words shall be my light 
Through death’s vale and dreary night; 
Yea, they are my sword prevailing 
And my cup of joy unfailing. 

4. Precious Jesus, I beseech Thee, 
May Thy words take root in me; 
May this gift from heaven enrich me 
So that I bear fruit for Thee! 
Take them never from my heart 
Till I see Thee as Thou art, 
When in heavenly bliss and glory 
I shall greet Thee and adore Thee.
