Representative Text

1 Jesus has opened up a fountain,
Where weary, sin-sick souls may go;
Hear Him in tender accents saying,
“Come where the healing waters flow.”

Come, O come!
Come, O come!
Hear him in tender accents saying,
“Come where the healing waters flow.”

2 Many have washed in these pure waters—
Washed all their stains as white as snow;
O, may the millions heed the message,
“Come where the healing waters flow.” [Refrain]

3 They who are pure in heart are blessed;
They heaven’s joys alone shall know;
Who then would fail to heed the message,
“Come where the healing waters flow.” [Refrain]
