        1. The Savior calls; let every ear
        Attend the heavenly sound.
        Ye doubting souls, dismiss your fear;
        Hope smiles reviving round.
        2. For every thirsty, Ionging heart
        Here streams of bounty flow
        And life and health and bliss impart
        To banish mortal woe.
        3. Here springs of sacred pleasures rise
        To ease your every pain;
        Immortal fountain, full supplies!
        Nor shall you thirst in vain.
        4. Ye sinners, come, 'tis Mercy's voice;
        The gracious call obey;
        Mercy invites to heavenly joys,
        And can you yet delay?
        5. Dear Savior, draw reluctant hearts;
        To Thee let sinners fly
        And take the bliss Thy love imparts
        And drink and never die.
