Christian Worship The Water Of Life.

The fountain in its source
No drought of summer fears;
The farther it pursues its course,
The nobler it appears.

But shallow cisterns yield
A scanty, short supply;
The morning sees them amply filled,
At evening they are dry.

The cisterns I forsake,
O fount of bliss, for thee!
My thirst with living waters slake,
And drink eternity.
