The Wellspring

When Love is abundant, store it away
For a time of great hate will come
When it does and you stand in warring days
 You’ll have plenty to draw love from. 

When it’s day and gorgeous Light fills your eyes,
Keep the vision of Light in mind.
For darkness will come and and evil will rise
When for the blind your light must shine

When Hope spills like water over your day
When within your soul all is well
Pour this hope in a well – make it to stay
Then dig deep, when fear wants to dwell

When Joy overwhelms you with peace untold
When you know Christ near and real
Ask the Spirit to reign – take over your soul
To guard these reserves with His seal.

For nothing in all of earth and her might
Has the power to drain the stored 
From the heart of God’s children who’re walking with Christ
From HIM good will endlessly pour. 
Guard your heart with all diligence, for from it flow springs of life.
Proverbs 4:23

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good,
and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Luke 6:45
