Representative Text

1 O have you not heard of the beautiful stream
That flows through our Father’s land?
Its waters gleam bright in the heavenly light
And ripple o’er golden sand.

O seek that beautiful stream,
Seek now that beautiful stream!
Its waters so free are flowing for thee;
O seek that beautiful stream!

2 Its fountains are deep, and its waters are pure
And sweet to the weary soul;
It flows from the throne of Jehovah alone,
O come where its bright waves roll!

3 This beautiful stream is the river of life,
It flows for all nations free.
A balm for each wound in its waters is found;
O sinner, it flows for thee.

This is a very different text from I’ll sing of that stream, of that beautiful stream.
