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

Representative Text

1 See the sparkling water,
Flowing now so free,
Dancing down the hillside,
Winding o’er the lea;
Bringing health and vigor
To the toiling man,
Flashing in the sunlight,
Free from poison’s ban.

2 O the crystal water,
How we love the sight
Of its waving beauty
In the sun’s fair light!
Every drop pellucid
Sparkles like a gem,
Brightest of the jewels
In a diadem.

3 Pure, life-giving water,
Flowing free for all!
In its draught no serpent
Lurks to cause our fall;
Sing aloud its praises
Over land and sea;
Pure and sparkling water
Is the drink for me.
