We gather to worship God, Giver of Life,
God, give us the waters of new life.

In the deserts of our lives, in the wilderness within,
God, give us the waters of new life.

To give us hope when our lives run dry, to give us strength when our world seems barren,
God, gives us the waters of new life.

To let peace flow like a river and love spring forth like a fountain,
God, give us the waters of new life.

To make justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a living stream,
God, give us the waters of new life.

To give us- and our world- a second chance and a new beginning,
God, give us the waters of new life.

Come, women of the Church, open your lives to receive God’s new life.
God, give us the waters of new life.
