A Beautiful Promise

With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 12:3
Onward, ye pilgrims that journey to Zion,
sing and be joyful, whatever betide;
trust in Jehovah, your Lord and your shepherd,
all that is needed his love will provide.

Think of the promise, the soul-cheering promise,
left to encourage the young and the old,
they shall draw water from wells of salvation,
beautiful promise, more precious than gold.

Ye that are thirsty and faint in the desert,
come to the wells of salvation so free;
drink of their waters, their life-giving waters;
come, there’s a welcome for you and for me.

You who are nearing the valley and shadow,
looking by faith to the bright golden shore,
precious to you are the wells of salvation,
sweeter their waters than ever before.

Think of the promise, the soul-cheering promise,
left to encourage the young and the old,
they shall draw water from wells of salvation,
beautiful promise, more precious than gold.
 Fanny Crosby (1881)
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
 Matthew 11:28
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Thank you, God, for your promise of salvation and renewal. Let me drink deeply of your living water that I may never thirst again.

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
