Representative Text

1 There’s a beautiful river of water so pure,
That flows thro’ the city of God;
And oft in my visions its light have I seen,
And longed for that happy abode.

Refrain:
The water of life—so pure water of life,
Freely flowing for you and for me!
Will you come, sinner, come? Oh, stay not away,
For Jesus is waiting for thee.

2 Hear the strains of redeemed ones float over that stream,
As gladly it ripples along;
Oh, list to the music to catch the sweet notes
And join in that heavenly song. [Refrain]

3 Come and drink of that water and thirst never more,
Oh, why will you longer delay;
Your Savior invites, and how sweet is the voice!
That calls to you, sinner, today. [Refrain]
