There is a fountain for our soul;

A refreshing flow and spring,

Like rivers of living water

To nourish and to cleanse within.

It’s renewing and so pure

That invites the new man in,

And sweeps away the cobwebs

Of our old nature within.

The fountain for our soul

Will lead to pastures green,

When the hand of God will come to cleanse

To instil peace so serene.

A fountain is inviting

With a promise and a hope,

And a beauty that’s inspiring

With creativity and scope.

It’s a sweet smelling aroma

And its waters they do dance,

To the rhythm of our heartbeat

And so dainty as they prance.

The calming nature of a fount

Will draw the eye to see,

The refreshing waters filled with life

And where the ear wants to be.

It’s soothing and so precious

With a warmth that’s rare and true;

The fountain with new beginnings

With a steadfast promise too.

It’s effervescent and inviting

And it washes and it cleans,

All stains of dirt and rubble

Whilst being a delightful scene.

The embellishment is flowers

And arrayed with all their glory;

They’re a masterpiece to behold

That each create a unique story.

The fount overflows with forgiveness

Pure and unadulterated too,

The river of living water from God

That is pristine and is true.

But when the fount is off

Much mould it can amount,

Because stagnant waters are unclean

When they are not stirred around.

It was the fountain at the cross

Where Christ’s blood was spilled indeed;

The fount that cleanses our soul within

So God’s wrath we do not see.
