A Flowing River and A Tree – Oh, What a Life!
“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” — John 7:38 (KJV)
A flowing river and a tree,
Eden’s outstanding features are,
Man to supply with food and drink
That he may live fore’er.
God is in Christ to be my supply,
God as the Spirit nourisheth me;
If upon Christ in spirit I feed,
Filled with His life I’ll be.
The tree the glorious Christ does show
As living food to man supplied,
That he God’s riches may enjoy,
Thus to be satisfied.
The river does the Spirit show,
Coming man’s spirit to supply,
That with God’s riches he be filled,
Holy to be thereby.
The Christ of glory is my life,
He as the Spirit lives in mine,
That I with God be fully blent
And in His image shine.
I would exalt this glorious Christ,
Ever the Spirit I’d obey,
Making His glory fully known,
Filled with His grace for aye.
