Come All You Thirsty

 

Come All You Thirsty


"I wanted to write a song where I set up a scenario with Jesus introducing himself to people who didn't want to have anything to do with him. I saw this image of people constantly asking "whats in it for me" and then Jesus would reply this way to them. Introducing himself as the water that quenches all thirst and satisfies all hunger."

Come all you small ones
You shall inherit the throne
No more hiding
Or being looked down on
Come all you liars
And I will give the truth
No more death-sentence
For I have risen for you

Listen you
Who have ears to hear
Who have feet to walk
Who have eyes to see
Listen you
Who're looked down upon
Who cried all last night
To survive this one

I will carry thee
