Reflection: Springs of Living Water

GB Rovers – HELP WANTED:  The numbers of children now involved is on the increase and we hope to run a few extra teams this year. If you would like to get involved please contact a coach or any member of Glin Rovers. 

Lord, your love is everlasting,

Never running dry, never exhausted,

More so than any earthly spring.

You love us all utterly,

To the limits of our understanding,

And beyond, without ever faltering.

There is no-one in this world,

Nowhere on earth,

Who is not loved by you.

Lord, may I never spurn

The love you lavish upon me.

May I never give up

On receiving from the living waters

You provide for us.

For as the waters of the earth

Flow and nourish and give growth,

So the living water

Flowing from your heart of love

Gives us life, sustains us,

Until you can find You,

The source of all good,

In the waters that well up to eternal life.

Lord, give us this water always.
