The name of the hymn is "I Thirst", I think it is by the Cathedral Quartet, and some of the lyrics are: I thirst, yet He made the rivers, I thrist, yet He made the seas....

Hi Crossinmypocket. This is what I was able to find:

1.
One day I came to Him when I was so thirsty.
I asked for water, my throat was so dry.
He gave me water that I never dreamed of.
But for this water, my Lord had to die.

Refrain
He said, "I thirst" yet he made the rivers.
He said, "I thirst" yet he made the sea.
"I thirst," said the king of the ages.
In His great thirst He brought water to me.

2.
Now there’s a river that flows as clear as crystal.
It comes from God's throne above!
And like a river, it wells up inside me,
Bringing mercy and life giving love.

I think this is it, give or take a few words. The song is one of the ones featured in this book:

I love this song. My aunt sings it at our church along with the other two of their group. They call themselves "The Trio." I think it's such a beautiful song and I thank you. I wonder, however, could you post the lyrics to "The Greatest of All Miracles"?

As an FYI...it was written by Mark Lowry's mother.  You can go to YouTube and see a duet of them singing it together.
