Yes, There Flows a Wondrous River

Representative Text

1 Yes, there flows a wondrous river,
That can make the foulest clean;
To the soul it is the giver
Of the freedom from all sin.

Round us flows the cleansing river,
The holy, mighty, wonder-working river,
That can make a saint of a sinner;
It flows the throne of God.

2 All who seek this cleansing river
Have their deepest need supplied;
From all ills its waves deliver
When for healing they’re applied.

3 Have you proved this precious river,
Perfect cleansing gaining there?
Losing burdens that need never
Rise again to bring you care?

4 On the margin of this river,
In your stains, why still delay?
Why not now be free for ever
And the voice of God obey?
