Ein Gedi, fountain of the wild goat
David’s place of refuge
Saul came with hope
Could he thwart God’s plan

Look at the night sky
The moon on the sea
A land locked oasis
Beckoning to me

Come aside-relax
Spend some time in prayer
Don’t forget the troubles
This wilderness could bear

Thirty miles to Jerusalem
Judea in between
Not a place for weakness
Strength was its acclaim

Always a respite
Before an assault
Lulling those of evil
The Lord was still boss

Remember as we journey
Don’t forget the springs
Often in the desert
The oasis is the king

Use your time with Jesus
To become God’s spring
You be the oasis
For those without a dream
