1 Living Water, freely-flowing,
Fount of gladness, life-bestowing,
Holy Spirit, O draw nigh,
While Thy name we magnify!
2 Full of grace from heaven Thou bendest,
And to lowest depths descendest;
Seeking, through a world of sin,
Souls whom Jesus died to win.
3 Where one contrite tear gives token
Of a heart by sorrow broken,
Breathing forth the breath of prayer,
O blest Spirit! Thou art there.
4 When the word of revelation
Glows with tidings of salvation,
Through the cross of Christ made known,
There Thy saving power is shown.
5 Where the mourner in his anguish
Lifts to God the eyes that languish;
When his spirit finds repose,
Comforter, from Thee it flows.
6 O Eternal Spirit! hear us;
Let Thy power and presence cheer us;
With Thy life our souls inspire;
With Thy love our bosoms fire.
7 By the Father sent from heaven,
By the Saviour's promise given,
Thee we claim, O Power Divine!
Come and make our hearts Thy shrine.
