Representative Text

1 O life-giving water that floweth so free,
O well of salvation for me, even me;
There’s healing, and resting, and rapture in thee,
Wonderful life-giving water.

Come, drink of the water of life,
The wonderful water of life,
That floweth so free for thee and for me,
Wonderful life-giving water.

2 O life-giving water to those who believe,
O blessed Redeemer, such water to give;
Ho! ye that are thirsty, drink freely and live,
Wonderful life-giving water. [Refrain]

3 O life-giving water for sinners to flow,
O wonderful Savior, such love to bestow,
The vilest of sinners its sweetness may know,
Wonderful life-giving water. [Refrain]
