1. Beside the Gospel pool
Appointed for the poor;
From year to year, my helpless soul
Has waited for a cure.
2. How often have I seen
The healing waters move;
And others, round me, stepping in
Their efficacy prove.
3. But my complaints remain,
I feel the very same;
As full of guilt, and fear, and pain.
As when at first I came.
4. O would the Lord appear
My malady to heal;
He knows how long I’ve languished here;
And what distress I feel.
5. How often have I thought
Why should I longer lie?
Surely the mercy I have sought
Is not for such as I.
6. But whither can I go?
There is no other pool
Where streams of sovereign virtue flow
To make a sinner whole.
7. Here then, from day to day,
I’ll wait, and hope, and try;
Can Jesus hear a sinner pray,
Yet suffer him to die?
8. No: He is full of grace;
He never will permit
A soul, that fain would see His face,
To perish at His feet.
