Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full 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.

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]
