1 If any man thirst, let him come unto Me,
Let him come! Let him come!
Whoever may hear let him come without fear,
Let him come! Let him come!

Refrain:
Let him take of the water that I have to give,
Let him freely partake, and eternally live;
Let him come! Let him come!
If any man thirst, let him come.

2 If any man thirst, let him come unto Me,
Let him come! Let him come!
Wherever he dwell, in a palace or cell,
Let him come! Let him come! [Refrain]

3 If any man thirst, let him come unto Me,
Let him come! Let him come!
The greater the need, let it hasten his speed,
Let him come! Let him come! [Refrain]

4 If any man thirst, let him come unto Me,
Let him come! Let him come!
“Whenever he may,” is a call for today,
Let him come! Let him come! [Refrain]
