Full Text

1Have you heard the raindrops drumming on the roof tops?
Have you heard the raindrops dripping on the ground?
Have you heard the raindrops splashing in the streams and
running to the rivers all around?
[Refrain:]
There's water, water of life,
Jesus gives us the water of life;
there's water, water of life,
Jesus gives us the water of life.

2 There's a busy workman digging in the desert,
digging with a spade that flashes in the sun;
soon there will be water rising in the wellshaft,
spilling from the bucket as it comes. [Refrain]

3 Nobody can live who hasn't any water,
when the land is dry then nothing much grows;
Jesus gives us life if we drink the living water,
sing it so that everybody knows. [Refrain]
