Full Text

1 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
A deep, living stream of delight;
The source of all blessings forever,
It flashes in heaven’s pure light.

Refrain:
Oh, drink of the river of pleasure and love,
I feel it so deep in my soul;
It gladdens the one who is born from above,
And maketh the wounded heart whole.

2 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
’Tis sparkling with joy for thy soul;
It flows in the bosom forever,
That’s given to Father’s control. [Refrain]

3 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
For thee it is flowing along;
Down from the bounteous Giver,
Its music a sweet, charming song. [Refrain]

4 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
And surely thy spirit shall know
Thy longing and thirsting are over,
Thy blessings forever shall flow.[Refrain]
