Lyrics

O the stream of living water!
From the stricken Rock it flows,
Free to every son and daughter—
Cure for all our sins and woes!

Refrain

O the water, flowing water,
All the thirsty to relieve;
Free to every son and daughter—
Come to Jesus, and receive!

Thro’ the wilderness we’re going,
To the land of promise fair;
Where the tree of life is growing,
By the river, flowing there!

Refrain

Praise the Lord, I feel it flowing,
Rippling, singing, in my soul;
And my Christian strength is growing!
Jesus Christ hath made me whole!

Refrain

Flowing on and on, forever,
To the sea of love, divine,
It shall know cessation never,
In this grateful heart of mine.
