Christ My Song - 741

The Rock was smitten, and from it - They drank of that Rock
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

“They drank of that Rock.”

1. The Rock was smitten, and from it
  the living waters pour;
they flow as full as at the first;
  they flow for evermore;
      Oh, drink, ye sons of men,
      never to thirst again! (PDF - Midi)

2. O smitten Rock of God, to thee
  in thirst and weariness
we come; revive us and refresh,
  Rock of the wilderness!
      Oh, drink, ye sons of men,
      never to thirst again!

3. O smitten Rock, which follows us
  where'er our steps may be,
we bid thee welcome, and sit down
  in joy each day by thee!
      Oh, drink, ye sons of men,
      never to thirst again!

4. Filled with thy love, the love of God,
  to us the waters flow;
filled with the grace of Christ our Lord,
  they come, and never go.
      Oh, drink, ye sons of men,
      never to thirst again!

5. Rock of eternity, thy stream
  shall flow and never cease,
throughout the everlasting day,
  beyond the wilderness!
      Oh, drink, ye sons of men,
      never to thirst again!

Horatius Bonar, "Until the Day break", 1890, 87-88.
