1 Fresh springs so holy,
All needed power
Find we in Jesus,
New for each hour.
Fresh springs of mercy,
Blessing our days
With glist’ning joy-drops,
Bright rills of praise.

2 Fresh springs of comfort
In deserts dry,
Till springtime verdure
Gladdens the eye.
Wells of salvation,
Rivers of peace,
Pure, living waters,
Flow and increase.

3 Fresh springs in Jesus,
Source of all grace;
Where fruits are richest,
His life we trace.
Fresh springs in glory,
Filling the soul,
When waves of rapture
Endlessly roll.
