Well of Grace

Genesis 21:19 “Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water…” (NIV)*


When paths of life have left you dry

In a desolate desert place.

There’s One who opens eyes to see

The life giving well of grace.

He sustains life in the desert

Where you thought you could never stay.

His well of grace never runs dry,

Replenishing, it flows each day.

Genesis 21:20 “God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert…” (NIV)*
