1 See, from Zion's sacred mountain
Streams of living water flow;
God has opened there a fountain
This supplies the plains below:
They are blesséd
Who its sovereign virtues know.
2 Through ten thousand channels flowing,
Streams of mercy find their way;
Life, and health, and joy bestowing,
Waking beauty from decay:
Oh ye nations,
Hail the long-expected day.
3 Gladdened by the flowing treasure,
All-enriching as it goes,
Lo! the desert smiles with pleasure,
Buds and blossoms as the rose:
Lo! the desert
Sings for joy, where'er it flows.
