Well of Sorrows

by Joann Nelander

Come, My Beloved.

Come near.

Come ever nearer.

Stand by this,

My well of sorrow,

Waiting to draw Water,

As Life for my soul.

I offer You my pain.

I pledge my every affliction.

That nothing may be lost of this my day.

You are Life.

You are the Water.

You are the Cup I press to my lips.

Hope of my heart,

Cause of my joy.

Turn my tears into rejoicing.

As I have chosen the better part.

You are the lightness of my burdens,

The joy that fills my soul.

Come, My Beloved.

I lie at Your feet,

Pray draw Your cloak about me.

Clothed in Your Love,

Robed in the splendor of Your blazing Heart,

I rejoice in Your refreshing streams.

Blood and Water,

Mingled with the tears of my repentance,

Water my heart and soul

With Your Eternal Love.

Come, Lord Jesus, come.

Come ever nearer,

Here, now, My Love.
