Jacob H. Hall (1855–1941)


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!


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!


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


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