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.

Ho! every one that thirsteth, come Where living waters flow

Ho! every one that thirsteth, come Where living waters flow

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Ho! every one that thirsteth, come.
Where living waters flow;
Come, buy, eat, drink, my wine, and milk,
Though ye no worth can show.
2. Why do ye spend your cost, and pains,
On empty earthly toys?
Hear me, and eat the good; delight
Your souls with heavenly joys.

3. Incline your ear, and come to me,
Hear, and your souls shall live;
I'll, the sure mercies of my son,
By endless covenant, give.
4. Him, witness to my flock, I've given,
And set him on a throne.
5. The gentile nations thou shalt call,
And they to thee shall run:

Because thy God, the Holy One,
Hath glorified thee.
6. Seek ye the Lord, in finding time;
And while he's near, call ye.
7. Let wicked men forsake their ways,
And turn unto the Lord;
Our God, in his great mercy, will,
With pardon, them reward.
