1 Take the hand thy Saviour gives thee,
Hold it fast within thine own;
It will lead thee to the river
That proceedeth from his throne.

Refrain:
River of Life that sparkles free,
River of Life that flows for thee,
River of Life that all may see,
And dwell on its banks forever.

2 Take the love that ne’er deceives thee,
Love that makes thee all its own,
Take it freely, like the waters
From the river near the throne. [Refrain]

3 Take the peace none else can give thee,
Hide it deep within thy breast;
Like the river clear as crystal
It will soothe thy care to rest. [Refrain]

4 Take thy all-sufficient Saviour,
Thou wilt find no friend so dear;
He will crown thee at the river,
Only be thou faithful here. [Refrain]
