Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Flowing this moment for thee

Full 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]
