This water is heaven on earth
the place where my soul is washed
dipped in its coolness
cleansed of the city
scourged free of urbanity

This fluid is life
the well of my sanity
my body nourished
wherein toxins release
while my thirsts are quenched

I am baptized again
restored to wholeness
If only this liquid power
could do the same for all

But this font of healing spirit
can only work its magic
when we do for it
what it has done for us

We are born of this sea, our mother
as her children we must bear her, too
To save our sorcerous solvent
her potency and purity must be assured.
