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.
