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.

Refrain:
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]
