We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O there is a river whose fresh waters flow

O there is a river whose fresh waters flow

Author: T. Tabor
Tune: THE RIVER OF LIFE
Published in 19 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Oh! there is a river whose fresh waters flow
O'er earth's broadest surface, a cure for all woe;
Its streams are all healing, there's life in each wave,
Oh, try it and prove it, 'tis mighty to save.
Hallelujah, Amen,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen.

2 Oh! drink of this river, its full crystal flood
Refreshes and lightens of sin's weary load;
Its ripples ne'er mix with the billows of strife,
This is the "Pure River of Water of Life."
Hallelujah, Amen,
Hallelujah, Amen,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen.

3 This beautiful river our boast well may be,
'Tis fresh, overflowing, and better, 'tis free!
The sin-sick rejoice in this "Peace-speaking" tide,
This River is Jesus, the "once crucified."
Hallelujah, Amen,
Hallelujah, Amen,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen.
