1. I’ve cast my heavy burdens down on Canaan’s happy shore,
I’m living where the healing waters flow;
I’ll wander in the wilderness of doubt and sin no more;
I’m living where the healing waters flow.

Refrain
Living on the shore, I’m living on the shore,
I’m living where the healing waters flow;
Living on the shore, I’m living on the shore,
I’m living where the healing waters flow.

2. With Israel’s trusting children I’m rejoicing on my way,
I’m living where the healing waters flow;
The cloudy fiery pillar is my guiding light today;
I’m living where the healing waters flow. [Refrain]

3. My hung’ring soul is satisfied with manna from above,
I’m living where the healing waters flow;
No more I thirst, the rock I’ve found, that fount of endless love;
I’m living where the healing waters flow. [Refrain]

4. I’m singing Hallelujah, safely anchored in my soul,
I’m living where the healing waters flow;
I’m resting on His promises; the blood has made me whole;
I’m living where the healing waters flow. [Refrain]
