"There's a Fountain Free"
Music: Asa B. Everett, 1876
Lyrics: Mary B.C. Slade, 1876
There's a fountain free, 'Tis for you and me:
Let us haste, O, haste to its brink;
'Tis the fount of love from the Source above,
And He bids us all freely drink.
There's a living stream, with a crystal gleam:
From the throne of life now it flows;
While the waters roll let the weary soul
Hear the call that forth freely goes.
There's a living well and its waters swell,
And eternal life they can give;
And we joyful sing, ever spring, O spring,
As we haste to drink and to live.
There's a rock that's cleft and no soul is left,
That may not its pure waters share;
'Tis for you and me, and its stream I see:
Let us hasten joyfully there.
Will you come to the fountain free?
Will you come? 'Tis for you and me;
Thirsty soul, hear the welcome call:
'Tis a fountain opened for all.
