Come, you poor and thirsty sinners,

To the living waters come;

Jesus bids you come and welcome,

And declares he'll cast out none;

His rich bounty 

Freely take-he makes it thine.

Wherefore toil you still for nothing?

Spend your strength and treasure too?

Joyfully receive the blessing

Which his liberal hands bestow:

All his goodness

Let your souls delight to know.
