I believe I’ll take a drink
From the well that won’t run dry
I believe I’ll take a drink from a well that giveth life
Thou only knew the gifts of god and who it was that said to thee
Thou would have asked of him give me drink and ye would give unto thee

I’ve got a river flowing
Inside of me
I’ll take a drink whenever
I feel the need

Not in the mountains
Or at Jacob’s well
But from my belly
Flows a well that’s springing of living water
Worship in me

I will never thirst again
Everlasting life

Water is spirit in me
Worship in life
The hour has come
And it is now
Spirit and truth
Worship he seeks
Father is seeking someone right now that will let go
And just release

As the waters flow
From the rivers
To the oceans
To the seas
Lord your spirit
Flowing inside of me
So as we worship
Let the rivers flow
In this place where we give you our hearts
Give you our hearts

I’ve got a well that’s living
Inside of me
Life in the flow of worship
I’ll take a drink

I know your singing, worship
I give you drink
I’ve got a well of worship
Inside of me

Flow, flow, worship inside of me

Life, life, life flowing out of me

Flow, Life, Flow, Life

Life flowing out of me

Flow, Life, Flow, Life

Life flowing out of me

    This song seems to rely heavily on john 4:7-14, jesus and the samaritan woman.
    When a samaritan woman came to draww water, jesus said to her, "will you give me a drink? " (his disciples had gone into the town to buy food. ) the samaritan woman said to hiim, "you are a jew and i am a samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink? " jesus answered her, "if you knew the gift of god and who it is that asks you ofr a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water. " "sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds? " jesus answered, "everyone who drinksthis water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water i give him will never thirst. Indeed the water i give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. "
    This reminded me of another passage about the vine and the branches. John 15:4 say's "remain in me, and i will remain in you. No branch can vear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. "

    If we remain in jesus, be obedient, and live by the spirit we will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature and we will have eternal life. Our spiritual gifts will continuously flow and be watered without experiencing drought. As a result we will have joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control remaining in us.
