Representative Text

ONCE I was far in sin,
But Jesus took me in,
Down where the living waters flow;
‘Twas there he gave me sight,
And let me see the light,
Down where the living waters flow.

Refrain:
Down where the living waters flow,
Down where the tree of life does grow;
I’m living in the light,
For Jesus now I fight,
Down where the living waters flow.

2 With Jesus at my side,
I need no other guide,
Down where the living waters flow;
He is my hope and stay,
He saves me every day,
Down where the living waters flow.

3 When fighting here is o’er,
I’ll rest for evermore,
Down where the living waters flow;
I’ll join the blood-washed throng,
And sing the angels’ sang,
Down where the living waters flow.
