Representative Text

1. From the riven rock there floweth
Living water ever clear;
Weary pilgrim, journey onward,
Know you not the Fount is near?

Jesus is the Rock of Ages—
Smitten, stricken, lo! He dies;
From His side a living fountain,
Know you not it satisfies?

2. Without money, without merit,
Jesus calls, Come unto Me;
Thirsty traveler, be encouraged,
Know you not the Fount is free? [Refrain]

3. Fainting in the desert, dreary,
Guilty sinner, hark! ’tis He!
’Tis the Savior still entreating,
Know you not He calleth thee? [Refrain]
