Representative Text

1 “Whosoever will may come,” O wondrous message!
Sing the blessed tidings all the world around:
“Whosoever will,” is sent to ev’ry nation
Where the perishing are found.

Refrain:
Whosoever will may come,
Whosoever will may come,
Whosoever will may come,
And drink of the water of life.

2 “Whosoever will may come,” O sinner, hear it,
See! the door is standing open all the day:
“Whosoever will,” be happy at the fountain—
Come along without delay. [Refrain]

3 “Whosoever will may come,” O precious promise!
“Whosoever will,” may have salvation free:
“Whosoever will,” O blessed invitation,
Thirsty soul, it is for thee. [Refrain]
