I taste the grace thatís boundless in supply
And feast upon abundant living Bread.
Iíve Water from the well that wonít run dry.

I pray to be the apple of Your eye.
Sweet is each promise from the words You said.
I taste the grace thatís boundless in supply.

Help me all evil thoughts and deeds deny;
May I be salt and light for You instead.
Iíve Water from the well that wonít run dry.

Just when I need You most, then You are nigh
If even from Your presence I have fled.
I taste the grace thatís boundless in supply.

Itís hard to comprehend why You would die,
But for my sinsYour precious blood was shed.
Iíve Water from the well that wonít run dry.

Lord, thank you for Your goodness from on high,
Your table thatís before me, always spread.
I taste the grace thatís boundless in supply.
Iíve Water from the well that wonít run dry.

Wow, I'm so impressed with your perfect villanelle! You've tackled a tricky poetic form and excelled! I love these lines that are the basis of this poem, "I taste the grace thatís boundless in supply. -- Iíve Water from the well that wonít run dry."
