Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O come to the fountain of mercy and love,
Whose pure healing water so gently doth move;
It flows from the Saviour’s side plenteous and free;
O come, guilty sinner, ‘tis flowing for thee.
Flowing for thee, Flowing for thee;
O come, guilty sinner, ‘tis flowing for thee.

2 Come hither, sad mourner, by sorrow oppress'd,
Draw nigh to this fountain, and you shall find rest;
O trust in the Saviour, whose love flows so free;
Come hither, sad mourner, ‘tis flowing for thee.
Flowing for thee, Flowing for thee;
Come hither, sad mourner, ‘tis flowing for thee.

3 Come, weary and laden with trouble of heart,
O come to the fountain, come just as thou art;
Drink deep of its waters, refreshing and free;
Partake of its fulness, ‘tis flowing for thee.
Flowing for thee, Flowing for thee;
Partake of its fulness, ‘tis flowing for thee.
