Till One Draws Near

The well is deep and I require 
A draught of the water of life, 
But none can quench my soul's desire 
For a draught of the water of life; 
Till One draws near who the cry will heed--
Helper of men in their time of need--
And I, believing, find indeed 
That You are the Water of Life.
