Water Me-(New)- a Song by Pat Moore

This is a song I wrote nearly 20 years ago, but that seems so relevant to our family in this last year. This is a new recording of this song with new guitar,...

I am doing all of the vocals and guitar in the recording

Pat, Al Viscardi here (Kim Cumifords Dad). I remember from the days at Chelwood. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Now as you have heard i'm dealing with the same. I'm not even sure right now what i'm feeling most of the time exept heart break i have never ever thought was possible. Terri and I met when she was 13 and i 15. We married at 18 and 20 and it ended 19 days ago after over 48years of marriage.

thank you for suggesting this site to Kim. I hope i can find "help" here.

Be blessed

Al

NM,

Your song "Water Me" really tore at my heart.  I just found the Comment feature.  I am so glad to know you and sorry about why.

Thanks A&M!   Being able to cast my cares on the Lord and knowing He is Here in the midst of the trials has helped so much.  The two early verses so fit so much of the anguish and "darkness" that filled my first year.  I know I wont always fully understand or see why the trials come, but He does and there is so much peace in that for me. 

 

He has truly watered me in the darkness & pain and is helping new life to bloom in the desert! 

 

Music helps me process so much and singing it is such a powerful way for me to express my emotions.  It still blows me away I wrote this 20 years ago and yet its like a microcosm of grief for me.  I wish I had a little better recording and mixing equipment but this was not to bad with the limited stuff I had at least in my eyes ;-) 

 

I know now that truly once again my heart will sing again with the same joy I had before!

This is a new recording of this song with new guitar, new main and backup vocals too. It could be better with better microphones, but its much better than the last version.

Praise God He comes to water us and stand with us in our trials and difficulties. I hope this song may encourage someone else as it has me.

Lyrics:
Water me


The Nights they seem so dark
and the days they seem so long
Oh my Lord when my eyes are not fixed on you
my soul is like a desert land

So i cry please come and water me
fill me up with love again from your spring
Lord I cry please come and touch my soul
that once again my heart can sing oh Lord to you

I dont always understand
and my eyes cant always see
Oh Lord why i must go through these trying times
and why the flames surround me

So I cry please come and water me
fill me up with love again from your spring
Lord I cry please come and touch my soul
that once again my heart oh Lord can sing to you

but now my eyes can see
and your truth has set me
that oh lord you are my strength
and in these times you'll never leave

but you'll come and water me
You'll fill me up with love again from your spring
yes you'll come and touch my soul
that once again my heart will sing oh Lord to you

yes you'll come and water me
You'll fill me up with love again from your spring
yes you'll come and touch my soul
that once again my heart oh Lord
once again my heart oh Lord
once again my heart oh Lord will sing to you
