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.
Harry Plantinga

Flowing this moment for thee

Representative Text

1 O weary one, thirsty and faint,
Say, why wilt thou languish and die?
The world has no balm for thy poor broken heart,
Thy need it can never supply.

Oh, come and be happy with me
Come, drink of the water so free.
The water of life
Thy Redeemer will give,
Is flowing this moment for thee.

2 O weary one, where wilt thou go?
Oppressed with thy sorrow and care;
Why turn from the light that is shining so bright?
When Jesus, thy Savior is there. [Refrain]

3 O weary one, why dost thou wait?
So near to the kingdom of grace,
What hinders thee now from believing thy Lord,
And earnestly seeking his face? [Refrain]

4 O weary one, tarry not here,
For what wilt thou gain by delay?
God’s mercy extended, invites you to come;
Then grieve not the spirit away. [Refrain]
