The Fountain

The water sprang
In arching glee,
A bubbling, gurgling, mounting tree.

From deep within
The ground it climbed,
To reach a peak of height sublime.

O fountain fair,
A pillar there,
What can you teach me in the air?

The spray you spew
Delights the eye,
And sprinkles o’er me as I try

To understand
The truth you show,
A doctrine dearly held to know,

A firm decree,
The fountain of
A holy faith and life above.

It’s not my work;
I’m not the root;
It’s all of grace—election’s fruit!
