Hymns#E0250 [Spring up, well, with water]

_1_

Spring up, well, with water;

Dig Thou, Lord, completely;

Dig away all barriers

That Thy stream flow through me.


_2_

Christ, the Rock, is riven;

Living water's flowing;

But within my heart now

It is blocked from going.


_3_

I will dig by praying,

Dig the dirt entirely,

Thus release the Spirit,

Let the stream flow freely.


_4_

There's no need again that

Christ, the Rock, be riven,

But unto the digging

That I should be given.


_5_

What I need most deeply

Is the Spirit's filling,

That the living water

From my heart be welling.


_6_

Dig till there is nothing

Left to block the passage;

Dig until the stream flows

With the living message.


_7_

Spring up, well, with water;

Dig Thou, Lord, completely;

Dig away all barriers

That Thy stream flow through me.
