I lived a life of loneliness

I lived a life of loneliness,

Ashamed to show my face,

Until I gained a righteousness

Entirely won by grace.


A chance encounter with a man,

Who asked me for a drink,

Was part of God's eternal plan,

The chain of love's first link.


He spoke of living water drawn

From an eternal well.

He knew my life, broken and torn,

And all my guilt could tell.


Yet still He offered life to me,

His gift as God's own Son.

And now I want the world to see

This man, the promised One.


This fountain made on Calvary's hill

Was bought by Jesus' pain.

And all who drink this water will

Not ever thirst again.
