This song is a testimony of one’s salvation story… looking back to the spiritual fountain that opened up when blood flowed from the side of Christ on the cross.
Bible Reference… Psalm 36:8,9; John 6; 10:10; 19:34

I took a drink from some life-giving water
in this dry desert land where I dwell.
And my cup’s overflowing gives me joy, makes me sing
‘cause I’m still drinking water from the well.

        CHORUS:
        Oh, yes, I’m still drinking water from the well overflowing
        from that clear, crystal fountain… watch it flow, watch it swell.
        And my soul’s satisfied, and I’m happy, can’t you tell?
        ‘Cause I’m still drinking water from the well.

They pierced His side and a fountain was opened
from a spear and those three rusty nails.
And it thrills me just knowing that my friends I can bring
and they, too, can drink water from the well. (CHORUS 2x)

        TAG:
        And my soul’s satisfied, and I’m happy, can’t you tell?
        ‘Cause I’m still drinking water from the well.
