1 The Spirit and the Bride say “Come!”
And drink of the water of life!
Oh, blessed call!—
Good news to all
Who tire of sin and strife!

Refrain:
The Spirit says “Come!”
The Bride says “Come!”
And drink of the water of life.
The Spirit says “Come!”
The Bride says “Come!”
And drink of the water of life.

2 “O, Come!” Let ev’ry one who hears
To all who are near him now say,
“I heard the sound,
The stream I found,
Behold the living way!” [Refrain]

3 Whoever will, come, taste and see!
Your longing the Saviour can fill!
The stream is free
To you and me,
And whosoever will! [Refrain]
