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.

Representative Text

1 There’s an open fountain in Zion,
Where the living waters flow;
Opened free by Judah’s Lion,
There the thirsty soul may go.
Ho! ye, ev’ry son and daughter,
Life eternal ye may have;
Come and drink the living water;
Come and drink, thy soul shall live.

Come and drink, thy soul shall live,
Come and drink, thy soul shall live;
Come, and drink the living water,
Come and drink, thy soul shall live.

2 He that drinketh thristeth never
For his soul is satisfied;
He shall dwell in peace forever,
And sit down at Jesus’ side.
Ho! ye, ev’ry one that thirsteth,
Christ can living water give;
You can have it without money,
Only drink, thy soul shall live.

Only drink, thy soul shall live,
Only drink, thy soul shall live,
You can have it without money,
Only drink, thy soul shall live.

3 To that fountain ever flowing,
Whosoever will, may come;
Endless life on all bestowing,
Whosoever will, there’s room.
Pilgrim, haste to Zion’s mountain,
Everlasting life receive;
Hie thee to that flowing fountain,
Drink, O drink, thy soul shall live.

Drink, O drink, thy soul shall live,
Drink, O drink, thy soul shall live,
Hie thee to that flowing fountain,
Drink, O drink, thy soul shall live.
