Come and Drink
By Ken L Birks
Come and drink from rivers of living
water, splashing everywhere.
As many drink and are refreshed, others
are afraid to surrender.
out, “Come, drink; discover new life
Allow splashes to touch your pain,” they
plead without fanfare.
“From the wells of salvation blessings
overflow,” they thunder.
As splashes of living water touch, flesh
begins to tingle.
As tingles of joy wash over, fear begins
to vanish for want of more.
Stepping closer to those splashing
around, their heart’s twinkle.
Joining those who’ve succumbed to the
living water, fear dissipates.
When asked to drink deeply from the
well, the Father vindicates.
Drinking from the wells of salvation,
living water flows unconfined.
Touched in ways, never imagined, all
things are now possible.
With minds renewed, old thoughts and
ways cease to define.
As peace floods, they’re overfilled with
Newness flows freely from the purity of
the new well, now primed.
As living water continually flows, the
well never runs dry with drink.
They’re now splashing others just as
they were once splashed.
With the same cry they once heard, they
cry, “Come and drink!”
Joy floods their souls as they enjoy
seeing others touched with service.
They all go forth splashing everywhere
with hearts filled with purpose.
