Springs of Life


I went to the river to bathe my soul
I sought the One who made me whole
I knew that He could give me rest
and I would put Him to the test.

He found me in that river wide
and He came closer to my side
for in His hands He held something
that could bring joy for my suffering.

From His pierced hands water flowed
and this water was with life endowed
He gave me some of this to drink
and it would change the way I think.

I never thirsted once again
after I drank from Him who was slain,
but I also emerged completely clean
when once I knew whom I had seen.

I now have waters welling up inside
like a torrential vibrant tide
since the Spirit came to live in me
so others can also drink freely.
