1 Of Him Who did salvation bring,
I’m at the fountain drinking,
I could forever think and sing,
I’m on my journey home.
Glory to God, I’m at the fountain drinking,
Glory to God, I’m on my journey home.

2 Ask but His grace, and lo! ’tis giv’n,
I’m at the fountain drinking,
Ask, and He turns your hell to heav’n,
I’m on my journey home.
Glory to God, I’m at the fountain drinking,
Glory to God, I’m on my journey home.

3 Tho’ sin and sorrow wound my soul,
I’m at the fountain drinking,
Jesus, Thy balm will make me whole,
I’m on my journey home.
Glory to God, I’m at the fountain drinking,
Glory to God, I’m on my journey home.

4 Where’er I am, where’er I move,
I’m at the fountain drinking,
I meet the object of my love,
I’m on my journey home.
Glory to God, I’m at the fountain drinking,
Glory to God, I’m on my journey home.

5 Insatiate to this Spring I fly,
I’m at the fountain drinking,
I drink, and yet am ever dry,
I’m on my journey home.
Glory to God, I’m at the fountain drinking,
Glory to God, I’m on my journey home.
