1 Hear the gospel call good news to all,
The Spirit and the Bride say “come,”
O, repent, believe, Christ will receive,
The Spirit and the Bride say “come.”

Refrain:
The Spirit and the Bride say “come,”
The Spirit and the Bride say “come,”
Of the water of life take freely,
The Spirit and the Bride say “come.”

2 Hear His loving voice, make Him your choice,
The Spirit and the Bride say “come,”
Let the Savior in, be free from sin,
The Spirit and the Bride say “come.” [Refrain]

3 At the fountain free, there’s purity,
The Spirit and the Bride say “come,”
Blessed peace find there, release from care,
The Spirit and the Bride say “come.” [Refrain]
