Lyrics

Dig Your Own Well <br />
By Marsha Stevens © 2001 Balm (ASCAP) <br />
(stolen from an Evelyn Schave sermon at Charismatic Conf. <br />

<br />
Well they struggled in the desert <br />
They were parched and dry <br />
When Isaac found them water so they would not die. <br />
But the owner's came with a mighty yell, <br />
"You're not our kind and your animals smell. <br />
Get back from the water, that is NOT your well." <br />
Chorus: <br />
Dig your own well, dig your own well, <br />
Don't hang out where they hate and condemn. <br />
They can keep you from drinkin' at the well they built, <br />
But the water don't belong to them ! no no no <br />
The water don't belong to them. <br />
Well you struggled with your secrets <br />
Thought you were the worst, <br />
Till you come to the water that could quench your thirst, <br />
But the preacher called you a Jezebel, <br />
Said, "You're not our kind and your going to hell. <br />
Get back from the water, that is not your well." <br />
(Chorus) <br />
Dig a little deeper. <br />
Jesus said, "If you drink from me you'll never thirst. <br />
And out of your own heart a living spring will burst." <br />
(Chorus x 2) <br />
In fact, I think we'll be singing them a requiem. <br />
‘Cause the water don't belong to them. <br />
