Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Hear the blessed invitation,
Come, come, come;
To the fountain of salvation
Come, come, come;
Healing streams are flowing still;
Welcome “whosoever will;
Let him take the water of life freely.”

Refrain:
Let him take, let him take,
Let him take the water of life freely;
Let him take, let him take,
Let him take the water of life freely.

2 ‘Tis the voice of Jesus saying,
Come, come, come;
Noe His blest command obeying,
Come, come, come;
He will cleanse from every ill;
Welcome “whosoever will;
Let him take the water of life freely.” [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the Holy Spirit calling,
Come, come, come;
Ere the shades of death be falling,
Come, come, come;
He the heart with peace will fill;
Welcome “whosoever will;
Let him take the water of life freely.” [Refrain]

4 Lo! “the Spirit and the Bride say,
Come, come, come;
And let him that heareth now say,
Come, come, come;
And let him that is athirst
Come, and “whosoever will;
Let him take the water of life freely.” [Refrain]
