1 Ho! ev’ry one that thirsteth, come and drink,
For the crystal tide is flowing free today;
There is pardon in the fountain of His love,
Drink ye freely of it while you may.

Refrain:
Come and drink the precious tide,
Flowing freely from the Master’s love;
Come and drink,
Come and drink,
Drink the life that cometh from above.

2 Ho! ev’ry one that thirsteth, come and drink;
There is healing in the stream for all who come;
Wonderful its pow’r to cleanse from ev’ry ill;
Jesus speaks the word and it is done. [Refrain]

3 Ho! ev’ry one that thirsteth, come and drink;
Drink the sacred tide before you turn away;
From the fountain of the Saviour’s loving heart,
It is offered free to all today. [Refrain]
