1 See, from Zion's sacred mountain
Streams of living water flow:
God has open'd there a fountain;
This supplies the plains below:
They are blesséd
Who its sovereign virtues know.
2 Through ten thousand channels flowing,
Streams of mercy find their way;
Life, and health, and joy bestowing,
Making all around look gay:
Oh, ye nations,
Hail the long-expected day!
3 Gladden'd by the flowing treasure
All-enriching as it goes,
Lo, the desert smiles with pleasure,
Buds and blossoms as the rose,
Sings for joy where'er it flows.
4 Trees of life, the banks adorning,
Yield their fruit to all around;
Those who eat are saved from mourning,
Pleasure comes and hopes abound:
Fair their portion!
Endless life with glory crown'd.
