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.
