Representative Text

1 Come to the Rock, the Smitten Rock,
Pierc’d by the rod of love;
See what a precious fountain flows
Forth from its source above.

Refrain:
Flowing forever,
Boundless and free;
Flowing forever!
‘Tis flowing for you and for me.

2 Come from the desert dark and drear,
Come from the path of sin;
Drink of these waters pure and clear,
Drink and be clean within. [Refrain]

3 Come to the fountain free to all,
Drink, “whosoever will!”
Jesus invites: obey the call!
Mercy is flowing still. [Refrain]
