1 Rest to the weary soul
And aching breast is giv’n,
Down where the living waters flow;
Grace makes the wounded whole,
Love fills our heart with heav’n,
Down where the living waters flow.

Refrain:
Down where the living waters flow,
Down where the tree of life doth grow, Hallelujah!
I am living in the light, for Jesus and the right,
Down where the living waters flow.

2 For thee, my soul, for thee
These priceless joys were bought,
Down where the living waters flow;
Thine is the mercy free,
That Christ to earth has bro’t,
Down where the living waters flow. [Refrain]

3 Come, with the ransomed train,
The Saviour’s praises sing,
Down where the living waters flow;
Rejoice! The Lamb was slain,
Adore! He reigns a King,
Down where the living waters flow. [Refrain]

4 And soon before His face,
We’ll praise in light above,
Down where the living waters flow
Triumphant thro’ His grace,
Made perfect by His love,
Down where the living waters flow. [Refrain]
