Representative Text

1 “I will give:” oh, blessed promise,
“I will give” life’s water free;
Thirsty souls, so dry and parched,
Come and quench your thirst in Me.

Let him take, O let him take,
Let him take of Christ so free;
It is He who offers pardon for the taking,
for the taking, offers pardon to thee.

2 He that tastes life’s wondrous water
Thirst again shall never know;
But a spring of joy within him
Shall in streams of blessing flow. [Refrain]

3 Hear His voice, ye fever-stricken;
To the fountain haste away;
Of its river pure, oh, drink ye;
It will slake your thirst for aye. [Refrain]
