And He showed me a river

And He showed me a river
Of water of life,
Bright as crystal,
Proceeding out
Of the throne of God
And of the Lamb.
And Thou shalt make them to drink
Of the river of Thy pleasures.
There is a river,
The streams whereof make glad.
The city of God.
She shall not be moved.
God shall help her.
God’s in her midst.
They shall be abundantly satisfied
With the fatness of Thy house.

At first, I thought it was odd, the way Higashi presents Christ as our Lover. It is not common in hymns, perhaps because people will misunderstand it. Where can I get this CD, "Lord Your Return"?

This hymn shows me just how deep God's love is for us. All the songs on the CD "Lord, Your Return" are wonderful!

This is one of my favorite songs. When we're in a difficult situation, we need to ask the Lord to show us a river, which is just Himself. Then we need to drink Him!

We need this water of life daily, every second of the day. In this age, at this time everything is so dry and apart from this one source - Christ must be our living water. So

Our Precious Lord give us to drink!

I am reminded to drink of this rich supply of water. To water my entire being with his presence and life supply to go on in this way of life day by day.

This song reminds me to return to my source. Ultimately we will be drinking of the pure river of water of life.

Every song that H.H wrote awakes in me my first love for my precious Savior.
