    Oh, how we Christians today need such healthy, heavenly ministers–the sower, the planter, waterer, begetter, feeder and builder. The ministers must be those that are constituted with the life giving and transforming Spirit. This means that they are full of Christ and therefore able to minister this very Christ into people. O Lord Jesus, raise these kind of ministers!

    A few changes, but the heart of this note in this song below. Hope you may enjoy!
    tune: Our Bridegroom Soon is Coming/1316 http://www.hymnal.net/hymn.php/h/1316

    1) We'd not only be planters, but also waterers.
    Once we plant Christ into oth'rs, we need to water them–
    With the wat'r of life; Daily, we'd water the dear saints,
    Who are plants in God's farm that need watering.

    A waterer in God's farm, likened–irr'gation system, to.
    With a reservoir, that would so supply a farm with water.
    Be such a divine system, reservoir of living wat'r,
    Stored within us, water the church as God's farm.

    2) We need to have the genuine exper'ence of Christ,
    As the wat'r of life and a living contact with Him.
    Consequently, thus, we will have a fountain of life–
    Bubbling so within us, constantly; we'll be–

    A channel of living water, divine irrigation–
    A system, that supplies others with the wat'r of life;
    We would be a channel of living wat'r, irr'gation divine,
    That's supplying others with wat'r of life!
