159. The Troubled Waters

1. An angel came down to Bethesda's pool
Each season with healing power;
But we have in Jesus a healing font,
That saves dying souls each hour.

Chorus:
The waters are troubled, step in, step in,
There's room for all;
The Spirit is pleading, the Saviour waits,
O list to the loving call.

2. Who entered the pool of Bethesda first
Could healing alone receive,
But here is a fountain that flows for all
Who shall in the Lord believe. [Chorus]

3. Then haste to this fountain,
O sin-sick ones,
The maim'd and the halt and blind,
And plunge in its waters by faith this hour,
And fullest salvation find. [Chorus]

4. The Spirit is pleading this solemn hour,
O turn from him not away;
The waters are troubled, step in, step in,
Make Jesus your own today. [Chorus]
