How many days, lord, have I walked in this wilderness?
A thirsty pilgrim with no water to drink.
And this barren place is making me crazy,
But as I wander on, I am forced to think.
Seems like I have spent so much time searchin'
In a dry and weary land where there's no truth.
But I think I'm finally realizin',
That my only hope of water is the well that comes from you, so-
Rain down your love upon me
Pour out your mercy on me
Please won't you take me to your springs of life
'cause I'm dying for deliverance, only you can save me,
I'm waitin', won't you take me,
To your springs of life.
Oh god, you are my god,
And my spirit seeks you,
But my flesh has failed you time and time again.
And now I've chosen this desert when your love was waitin',
But your stubborn child longs to understand-
So I'll not waste another minute searchin'
In a dry and weary land where there's not truth,
Oh, I think I'm finally realizin'
That my only hope of water is the well that comes from you, so
