Drink and Live

Full Text

1 Living water pure and free,
God hath sent to you and me;
Of the water Jesus gives,
He who drinks forever lives.

Chorus:
Come, drink, drink of the water,
Come drink of the water of life,
come drink, drink of the water,
While now it is flowing for thee, for thee.

2 Thirsty souls with care oppress'd,
Drink and Christ shall give you rest;
Why with thirst should sinners die,
Since life's fountain is so nigh. [Chorus]

3 Come and drink while 'tis today,
Come and drink without delay;
Come, for this is Jesus' call,
To the fountain free to all. [Chorus]
