I Am Thirsty


This joyous song call and response song by Marilyn Haskel celebrates the life-giving, renewing waters of baptism. The text draws imagery from the miracle of water from the rock in Exodus 17, as well as Jesus' words to the Samaritan woman in John 4.

Marilyn begins by teaching the community's responses, which can take some time and patience. As the piece grows in confidence, harmony can be invited and a second leading voice can be added.

"I am thirsty. I come to Jesus.
I believe. I come to drink.
From the rock came life-giving water;
from the well, water for all.

From my heart, water is flowing;
from my heart, outward to all."
