Fountain of Living Waters

God has stood long at the gates
     by which all people come and go,
          even the most mighty of kings,
Saying: Hear the word of the Lord!

Some have stopped and lent an ear,
     but most have stiffened their necks
          as if passing by a pauper there.
There will soon come a day when
     many will ask: where is God's word?
          and say: let it come now!

Blessed is the man who plants his hope,
     who spreads his roots nearest
          the Fountain of Living  Waters.

Jeremiah 17:7-23
