If you know where to get a good pho­to of King (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


I am drinking at the fountain
That will ne­ver run dry,
Drinking of the new wine of Canaan;
The Sav­ior heard my pleading
And my anxious cry,
I yielded, and the blessèd
Holy Ghost came in.


Drinking at the fountain,
Daily at the fountain,
Feasting on the new wine of Canaan,
And my Sav­ior satisfies my every longing,
For I’m dwelling in the land of Canaan.

Oh, the load of sin I carried
Has been taken away,
Now from sin I’m free Hallelujah,
While leaning on His loving
Arm I cannot stray;
He dwells with me, the blessèd
Holy Ghost each day.


He is willing, He is waiting
Now to make your heart pure,
Open wide the door, bid Him enter;
Oh, hear Him, still He’s knocking,
Hear Him still implore;
Throw open wide the door,
And He will enter in.
