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.

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]
