Music Mondays: Living Waters – Keith & Kristyn Getty

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’ve selected one of my favorite newer worship songs from my favorite Irish musicians, Keith and Kristyn Getty. I love the lyrics of “Living Waters,” and how the song reminds us to faithfully nurture our children in the faith.

Spirit moving
Mercy washing
Healing in these living waters
Lead your children to the shore line
Life is in these Living Waters

“Living Waters” (mp3 available on Amazon for $1.29) is a great worship song to build into a congregational singing rotation. While attending the Village Church a few years ago, I appreciated and loved how every song had tie ins to Scripture as the lyrics were displayed on the screen. For “Living Waters,” appropriate Bible verses would be from John 4 or John 7.

10 Jesus answered, “If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would ask him, and he would give you living water.” (John 4:10)

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38 The one who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.” (John 7:37-38)

Are you thirsty
Are you empty
Come and drink these Living Waters
Time unbroken
Peace unspoken
Rest beside these Living Waters
Christ is calling
Find refreshing
At the cross of Living Waters
Lay your life down
On Thee, all come
Rise up in these Living Waters

There’s a river that flows
With mercy and love
Bringing joy to the city of our God
There our hope is secure
Do not fear anymore
Praise the Lord of Living Waters

Spirit moving
Mercy washing
Healing in these living waters
Lead your children to the shore line
Life is in these Living Waters

There’s a river that flows
With mercy and love
Bringing joy to the city of our God
There our hope is secure
Do not fear anymore
Praise the Lord of Living Waters

Are you thirsty
Are you empty
Come and drink these Living Waters
Love, forgiveness
Vast and boundless
Christ, He is our Living Water

There’s a river that flows
With mercy and love
Bringing joy to the city of our God
There our hope is secure
Do not fear anymore
Praise the Lord of Living Waters
