MY WATERING CAN OF LOVE

                      I TOOK MY WATERING CAN WITH GLEE  

AS I WENT TO OUR SECRET GARDEN TO SEE

THE FLOWERS --- THE BIRDS --- THE BEES
    BLOSSOMING COLORS EVERYWHERE  

SONGS OF BIRDS FILLING THE AIR
BUZZING HONEY BEES AMID  
THE BLOOMING APPLE TREES

THE AIR IS FREE AMIDST OUR GARDEN  
NOW YOU AND I ARE ABOUT TO MEET A MYSTERY

HOW WATER IN MY GARDEN CAN  
FILLED FROM THE RIVER --- I AM ---

    DRINKING WATER FROM MY CAN AND ME
        CAN FILL A NEED IN YOU AND ME  
       DIVERSE AS SKY IS FROM THE SEA

OH LOVE OF GOD --- COME FROM THE TREE
  THAT TREE ALONE CALLED CALVARY

SO --- LET ME FILL YOUR CAN WITH LOVE
 OF CALVARY’S BRANCHES FROM ABOVE

---IT’S ALL OF YOU AND NONE OF ME
   YOUR SPIRIT ALONE HAS SET ME FREE

---SO I LIFT MY HANDS UP TO THE SKY
FOR JESUS’ LOVE IS PASSING BY

EVER GRATEFUL WILL I BE
AS MY HAND IN YOURS --- YOU GENTLY HOLD
---TO PLACE THIS RING OF PRECIOUS GOLD  
---UPON MY --- NAKED VIRGIN FINGER ---
   THE KINDEST LOVE A MAN CAN SHOW

---EVERY BRANCH ON THAT TREE
         DROPS YOUR PRECIOUS LOVE ON ME

---NO GREATER LOVE HATH ANY MAN
THAN BLOOD STAINED HANDS --- AS WOUNDS DEMAND ---

---I GAVE YOU NAILS --- TO PIERCE YOUR HANDS
       ---YOU GAVE ME A RING --- AS YOUR LOVE DEMANDS

---I WATCHED YOU DIE IN PAIN AND AGONY
---YOU SAID --- IT IS FINISHED ---
THAT MEANS A BRAND NEW START FOR ME

FOR NAILS --- YOU GAVE ME A HEART THAT BURNS
OF LOVE FOR YOU --- I CAN BARELY ENDURE
    ---YOUR LOVE STAGGERS ME BEYOND COMPARE
    ---AS YOU ASK OF MY HEART YOUR BRIDE TO BE

--- I DREAM --- I CRY --- I LOVE --- I DIE ---
    ---- EVERTHING IN ME --- SAYS YES TO YOU ---
    ---YOU DRESS ME WHITE --- IN MY WEDDING DRESS
WITH A CRIMSON SASH ROUND MY BREAST

--- ETERNITY WILL ALWAYS SHOW
IT’S YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND CRIMSON FLOW
---THAT MAKES THIS MARRIAGE WHITE AS SNOW
  ---TO YOU MY KING OF KINGS MY LORD OF LORDS ---
                
I BOW MY HEART--- AS YOU HOLD ME CLOSE

                      ---PLEASE KEEP HOLDING ME ---
                       TIGHTER AGAINST YOUR CHEST
SO THE WARMTH OF YOUR LOVE I CAN FEEL IN
MY BREAST

—THE GREATEST LOVE EVER KNOWN

—YOURS — YOURS ALONE —

CHAMBERS OF LOVE — TO OTHERS UNKNOWN

—DRINK MY DARLING — DRINK MY LOVE —

FOR I AM YOURS — AND YOU ARE MINE
