Loved for the First Time

Standing at the well
the fount of living water
ready to be baptized
to join in the stream
to dip into the water
to be filled with the Spirit
feeling loved for the first time
by a people, a Savior
wanting to join Him
to stand in the water
to drink from the pool, the well
the fount of living water
