A Blessing for the Pool of Israel


When your heart is distressed,
when your work is fruitless,
when you are exhausted,
May you dive into the pool.

Blessed is the Lord-
the hope of all our expectations,
the gathering of all our dreams.

When enemies pursue and mockers gloat,
when you are abused and abandoned,
May you dive into the pool.

Blessed is the Lord-
our sweet relief,
our health and salvation.

When you are scorned and shunned,
May you dive down deep into the pool.

Blessed is the Lord-
the source and spring
of ever-flowing living water
and streams of mercy
without ceasing,
who says, “Come and drink.

Anyone who is thirsty,
Everyone who is weak,
Come, dive into the Pool or Israel
and from your heart
shall flow streams of living water.”

Amen

(Jeremiah 17: 13 – 18, Psalm 25, John 7: 38 – 39)
