Water of life


  1. Merciful Jesus, touch our hearts:
    All: Give us life!
    help us to know and love the father:
    All: Give us life!
  • Refrain:
    O living water,
    healing us within,
    cleansing our lives
    of fear and anger,
    Water of Life.
  1. Spirit of truth, inspire our hearts...
    Guide us in faith to love each other...
  2. Father of wisdom, hear us now...
    Wash us anew in living water...
  3. God of compassion, heal us now...
    Cleanse and refresh our lives with power...
  4. Make us your sons and daughters, Lord...
    With this water cleanse and free us...
  5. Spirit of love descend on us...
    Fill our lives with faith and courage...
