Come to the water if you thirst,
This water is for the living;
Come as to be one of the first,
Because the Lord is forgiving.
Come in getting something to eat,
Even if you have no money;
The Lord will be washing your feet,
Before you taste milk and honey.
Why spend money when it is free,
You do not have to pay for wine;
Nourish yourself with what you see,
Provided free by the Divine.
Eat what is good enjoy the food,
Your wages do not satisfy;
Nourishment gives the attitude,
That a stomach cannot deny.
Open your ears so you can hear,
Listen up so that you may live;
Remembering that God is near,
With the blessings willing to give.
Such an everlasting promise,
Promised David with the blessings;
Do not be doubtful like Thomas,
Rather what goodness the Lord brings.
I make you a witness to those,
That are commanders and leaders;
The direction a blessing flows,
Unto the spiritual feeders.
You are summoning a nation,
That you may have never had known;
And offering them salvation,
That God is willing to condone.
Because the Lord is our God,
Because He is the Holy One;
Remember to honor and laud,
Until the day this life is done.
Seek the Lord where He may be found,
Call on Him while He is near;
Listening for hearing His sound,
Honoring Him as you revere.
