1.  The Savior calls; let every ear

Attend the heav’nly sound.

Ye doubting souls, dismiss your fear;

Hope smiles reviving round.

2.  For ev’ry thirsty, longing heart

Here streams of bounty flow

And life and health and bliss impart

To banish mortal woe.

3.  Here springs of sacred treasures rise

To ease your ev’ry 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 heav’nly 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.
