The Living Water Of Life

    

We ask for rain,it comes in torrents upon the shore 
Along with thunder and lightning and all their uproar ! 
Natures has a way to know when to pour 
Heaven's water, on the earth down below . 
The rich and poor all need to drink 
Heaven's water, that's free for all ! 
~*~ 
The streams and rivers that substain life 
Travel along the way ; their water 
Fills the lakes, the rivers, the seas and the brooks . 
Of every nook of our beloved world. 
Out from the ground,  plants and trees grow 
With so much splendour,  a miracle of life ! 
God be praised for He is the maker of all . 
~*~ 
Living creatures that drink of this water of heaven know 
How the lack of it will make them die of thirst ! 
I hope they make it last 
For a long , long time and still will 
Be there to quench the thirst of all forms of life ! 

~*~ 
Are we not travelling along the streams of life , 
Where we encounter, events 
That make life sweet or bitter or both ? 
But along the way there's also joy and beauty 
As the joy of living , life offers in bounty ! 

And yet ..... 

When darkness shrouds us in its embrace 
Only do we think of Our Savour ; He's our redeeming grace ! 
And, one more thing , do you know that , 
The living water of Christ is far 
Far more important than this water of life ? 
For it is the water of eternal life .
