The Wellspring of Life

          Oh Lord I pray to quench this thirst
          I lay my body down
          Within the lovely flowing brooks
          Where springs of life are found.

          My mouth - it thirsts, my soul - it pants
          For water from your well
          Like lost sheep in the desert sand
          In barren land, I dwell.

          The sun beats down upon the stone
          Your cistern must be full
          I see the water, gleaming bright
          In early morning lull.

          Please let me taste the breath of life
          A sinner, such as I
          To lie beneath the cleansing tide
          Immerse my lips, so dry.

          I bid the pool of righteousness
          To wash my spirit clean
          And wipe away the stain within
          Of many sins unseen.

          Eternal life awaits me
          I must surrender all
          To enter in, I must begin
          And hear Godís gentle call.

          I pray to drink from waters deep
          To know beyond a doubt
          The only One, Godís precious Son
          Can bring salvation out.
