I recently released a new album (acoustic chronicles) and wanted to give everyone a breakdown of what these songs mean. They are all very deep and biblical so I wanted to make sure and explain them so I have a place for anyone who wants to know all the meaning behind them. Most of the lyrics are old hymns that I revamped to fit my melodies. This one is from a hymn by W.V. Miller called “The Well of Living Water”. Here is my version in full.
Oh this well of, living water springing up within my, soul
Gives me blessed, satisfaction while the changing seasons, roll
And in Jesus, love rejoicing still a song of praise I, bring
For the blessed, gift of Heaven for this ever-living, spring
For this well of living water
That is flowing now for me,
Songs of praise and adoration,
Blessed Lord, I bring to Thee.
The depths unknown is so flowing from the depths of Jesus, love
It was purchased, by the Savior gift divine from Heaven, above
He alone can give this water, “Whosoever will may, come,”
Quench his thirst from, this pure fountain and from Jesus never, roam
So the blessed, news I’m spreading of this dear life-giving, spring
Ever pure and, free is rushing as my Savior’s love I, sing
It is flowing, ever flowing in this grateful heart of, mine
And my tongue shall tell the gladness of this matchless grace, divine
This is another theme that we don’t sing a lot about but it’s a beautiful illustration that Jesus Himself uses to describe His coming salvation. A couple verses that reference this theme, John 4:4-6, John 7:37-39. But what is being talked about is a theme throughout the entire bible. Jesus isn’t saying that once you become a Christian you’re not thirsty anymore, or that you won’t need drinking water ever again. Christ is comparing the importance of our physical need for water and how it brings life to everything that is living. Jesus takes it a step further and says, “the water I am offering will give everlasting life”. Not just the temporal hydration we receive here in this life but a symbolic eternal life-giving drink. Jesus Himself drank a cup, sacrificing Himself for the world that believes in Him. Now He is able to offer a different cup to anyone who would receive it. A cup that is acceptable to God and when you drink, you are saved and alive forever! I pray this song helps these truths reach down into your heart and soul to worship God more.
