Fountain of Life

by John Keating
Fountain of life, 
Ocean of love, 
Source of all truth and beauty, 
coming down from above. 

Torrent of joy, 
Wellspring of hope, 
River of living waters, 
flowing out from my soul. 

O God, my God, for you I long. 
My soul thirsts for you, 
my flesh faints for you. 
Forever to you I belong. 

O God, my God, there at your side: 
the fullness of grace, 
the light of your face, 
in you am I satisfied.
