Representative Text

1 Beneath the glorious throne above,
The crystal fountain springing,
A river full of life and love,
Is joy and gladness bringing.

O Fount of cleansing, flowing free!
That Fount is opened wide for me;
For me, for me,
Is Opened wide for me.

2 Thro’ all my soul its waters flow,
Thro’ all my nature stealing;
And deep within my heart I know
The consciousness of healing. [Refrain]

3 The barren wastes are fruitful lands,
The desert blooms with roses;
And He, the glory of all lands,
His lovely face discloses. [Refrain]

4 Oh, depth of mercy! breadth of grace!
Oh, love of God unbounded!
My soul is lost in sweet amaze,
By wondrous love confounded. [Refrain]
