Come to the source, cup your hands.
Drink the water, living water,
pure and clear and cold,
better than silver and gold.

1 Hiking in the hills, hot and thirsty,
friends see a waterfall, glistening and steep.
Standing in the stream, they splash their hands and faces,
soaking wet and shouting with delight. [Refrain]

2 Working at a well, hot and weary,
a woman met a foreigner, Jesus was his name.
Thirsting for the truth, she got an invitation:
"Trust in me, and never thirst again." [Refrain]

3 Philip met an African, chanting, praying,
high in his chariot, steward to a queen.
baptized, he could share in Philip's exultation:
Jesus Christ has welcomed you today. [Refrain]

4 People of the world, longing, hoping,
meet at the waterfall, hearing Jesus' news:
"Anyone may come, and everyone is welcome.
All may come and none are turned away." [Refrain]
