Isaiah 12:1-6 (NIV)

III. 4 In that day you will say: A. “Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. B. 5 Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. C. 6 Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”
II. 1In that day you will say: A. “I will praise you, O Lord. B. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. C. 2 Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. D. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.” E. 3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

When jesus spoke to the woman at the well in John Chapter for, he offered her living water, and said those whose thirst is quenched with this water, out of their bellies will flow living water. Once we taste it, we should tell it. It should flow out in songs of salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
