The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.@Revelation 22:17

The Spirit and the Bride say, Come
And take the water of life!

O blessèd call! Good news to all
Who tire of sin and strife!

Refrain

The Spirit says, Come!
The Bride says, Come
And take of the water of life freely.

The Spirit says, Come!
The Bride says, Come
And take of the water of life freely.

Let every one who hears say, Come!
And joyful witness give;
I heard the sound, the stream I found,
I drank, and now I live.

Refrain

Ye souls who are athirst, forsake
Your broken cisterns first;
Then come, partake; one draught will slake
Your soul’s consuming thirst.

Refrain

Yea, whosoever will may come:
Your longings Christ can fill;
The stream is free to you and me,
And whosoever will.

Refrain
