Representative Text

1 From the glorious heav’nly arches
Comes the gracious call today;
O heed the voice so gently calling,
Hear the blessed Saviour Say—

Refrain:
“Freely drink, drink and live,
Everlasting life receive,
Come ye souls that thirst for living water,
Freely drink of me and live.

2 “Do you thirst for living water,
Are you weary—tired of sin?
Then come to Me, I will receive you,
I will bid you enter in!” [Refrain]

3 “Come, O, sinner to the fountain,
Come, refresh thy soul and live,
Refreshing streams are ever flowing,
Freely drink of Me and live!” [Refrain]
