God's Desire

God’s Desire
Isaiah 55

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew 5:6

Matthew 11:25-30

All who are thirsty
All who are weak
Come to the fountain
Dip your heart in the stream of life
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
In the waves of His mercy
As deep cries out to deep
Come Lord Jesus come

And hearing this, Jesus said to them, “it is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mark 2:17
