1 O have you not heard of that 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,
O seek 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. [Refrain]
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! [Refrain]
3 O will you not drink of this beautiful stream,
And dwell on its peaceful shore?
The Spirit says, Come, all ye weary ones, home,
And wander in sin no more. [Refrain]
