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.

Representative Text

1 I’m drinking at the Gospel wells
Whose fount is by the throne above;
I’m drinking at the Gospel wells,
The fountain of redeeming love.

Refrain:
O how my heart with rapture swells,
While drinking at the Gospel wells;
‘Tis only he who drinks it knows
How sweet and pure the water flows.

2 I’m drinking at the Gospel wells,
The healing water of His grace,
Which every taint of sin dispels,
And makes my heart His dwelling place. [Refrain]

3 I’m drinking at the Gospel wells
Refreshing draughts of joy and peace;
All other joy the draught excels,
And, best of all, it does not cease. [Refrain]

4 I’m drinking at the Gospel wells,
I find them all along the way;
O how my heart with rapture swells!
I find them sweeter every day. [Refrain]
