This Thirst Will Not Last Long

Calling Out Your Name
From the place where morning gathers,
You can look sometimes
Forever ’til you see
What time may never know
How the Lord takes by its corners this old world
And shakes us forward — shakes us free,
To run wild with the hope,
The hope that this thirst will not last long,
That it will soon drown
In the song not sung in vain;
I feel the thunder in the sky,
I see the sky about to rain,
And with the prairies I am calling out your name.
– Rich Mullins
