Living Water

2726105-small-cascade

Come to Calvary’s Holy Mountain, sinners, ruined by the fall;  Here a pure and healing fountain flows for you, for me, for all, in a full, perpetual tide, opened when our Savior died.

Come in poverty and meanness, come defiled, without, within; from infection and uncleanness, from the leprosy of sin, wash your robes and make them white; you shall walk with God in light.

Come in sorrow and contrition, wounded, impotent, and blind; here the guilty, free remission, here the troubled, peace may find.  Health this fountain will restore; they that drink shall thirst no more.

They that drink shall live forever; ’tis a soul renewing flood.  God is faithful; God will never break His covenant of blood, signed when our Redeemer died, sealed when He was glorified.

Hymn text by James Montgomery, 1771-1854

“On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'”  John 7:37-38
