Springs of Water
Where does it all come from, seeming endless supply?
Out of the rock and ground? Water that satisfies!
Washing, cleansing, scrubbing, bathing, cleaning, rinsing,
Showers, pouring, clearing; my soul’s purifying.
Such sweetness on hot days, oases in hot years.
Washing suffering’s tears and bringing joyous tears.
Satisfying, quenching, slurping, sipping, swilling,
Satiating, drinking, gurgling, guzzling, gulping.
That spring joyfully lives, bubbling, foaming, alive!
Captivating my heart! In His waters I dive.
Splashing, frolicking joy, meets depression’s twilight,
Sparkling, enchanting joy, effervescent delight.
