What I Want For You

by Roger Ludwig

Sir, you have no bucket, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? — John 4:11

What I want for you,
what I want for the world,
is this well, Jacob's well,
well of wonder, well of awakening,
and this water, living water,
water of life
flowing freely
in a dry place,
fresh from the source—
invisible,
yet available,
always,
everywhere.

What I want for you,
what I want for everyone,
is thirst, this thirst
for this water
as for nothing else—
this knowing
that nothing else
will do.
