Worship Resource: We Thirst For You

This worship resource originally accompanied a sermon based on John 19:28 NIV:

Later, knowing that all was now completed,
and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled,
Jesus said, “I am thirsty.”

It would work well with any scripture with the theme of hungering and thirsting for God.
