1 Lo! a fountain full and free,
Overflowing ever;
Fainting heart, it is for thee,
Overflowing ever;
Gushing, sparkling, never still,
Taste its sweetness, drink thy fill.

Overflowing, overflowing ever,
Flowing now for thee.

2 List the murmur that it speaks,
Overflowing ever;
On the soul in song it breaks,
Overflowing ever;
Singing, soothing souls to ease,
Music of all melodies. [Refrain]

3 Blessed fount! the purest known,
Overflowing ever;
Stream of life from out God’s throne,
Overflowing ever;
Sacred blood for sinners spilt,
This can cleanse away thy guilt. [Refrain]
