Gift Of God

 

Eb                              Bb
How can I draw from my own well
Ab                                Bb
When You’ve approached me, my God
Eb                              Bb
How can I keep to my routine
Ab                          Bb
When You have shown me Living Water
Eb                        Bb                              Cm                       Gm
No more shall I from this well draw water that runs dry
Ab                               Eb                     Ab                  Bb
I ask for what You’ve told me of for You will satisfy
Eb              Bb                     Cm                        Gm
Satisfy an inward thirst I hadn’t known before
Ab                  Eb                        Fm           Bb              Eb
This gift of God is everything that I’ve been searching for

You know the darkness in my life
And everything I have done
And yet You have a heart for me
To know and seek Your Living Water
So now shall I from this well, my Savior, Lord, and God,
Draw everlasting springs of joy and deepest wells of love
From each day onto the next You fill me more and more
This gift of God is everything that I’ve been searching for

You speak a word, a wondrous word
And yet You speak it to me
O what a life that we receive
When we receive Your Living Water
Worshipping the Father in the Spirit and in Truth
No more must I to mountains climb; I draw my source from You
Every year You work in me to gain me more and more
This gift of God—I’ve finally found what I’ve been searching for
