"I am come that they might have life"

"The water I shall give," thus spake our Lord,"Shall be in him a well of water." SoI heard him speak adown the centuries.And lo! the understanding of the LifeDivine, flooding with tender light and graceThe waiting thought that listens and adores,Dissolves the shadows, recently so dread,And God is glorified on earth once more.

Dear Lord and Master, may we ever beAttent and humble to thy healing word!Not only then and there, but now and here,Christ's living presence, evermore adored,Speaks to the listening ear and eager heart;Pours out its bounty, inexhaustible;Tells its rare secrets; lavishly bestowsIts priceless treasures, ever new and fair.
