Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 As I sought with weary flitting
Where to dwell, where to dwell,
Came I to the Master sitting
On the well;
‘Twas the well of health and cheer,
Living water fresh and clear.

O the Master is sitting on the well,
O the Master is sitting on the well;
And the Living Water flows;
Giving life where’er it goes,
While the Master is sitting on the well.

2 From the living depths He brought is,
Bubbling up, bubbling up,
And to me who faintly sought it,
Gave the cup;
Life was in the draught He gave,
Springing life to help and save. [Refrain]

3 From the dreary desert turning,
Pause and drink, pause and drink;
Calm the striving, cool the burning,
At its brink;
Here find healing and repose,
Where the Living Water flows. [Refrain]
