1 “Ho! ev’ry one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters;
And he that hath no money, come ye buy and eat.”

Refrain:
Come, for the feast is before you,

Turn not away.

2 Now has the dear loving Saviour spread here a table for thee,
Thus will He feed all the hungry, yes, ‘tis for you and me. [Refrain]

4 Over and over He’s called you, now He is calling again;
Just as you are, He’ll receive you, cleanse ev’ry guilty stain. [Refrain]
