82. The Gracious Call

1 From the glorious heav’nly arches
Comes the gracious call today;
O heed the voice so gently calling,
Hear the blessed Saviour Say—

“Freely drink, drink and live,
Everlasting life receive,
Come ye souls that thirst for living water,
Freely drink of me and live.

2 “Do you thirst for living water,
Are you weary—tired of sin?
Then come to Me, I will receive you,
I will bid you enter in!” [Refrain]

3 “Come, O, sinner to the fountain,
Come, refresh thy soul and live,
Refreshing streams are ever flowing,
Freely drink of Me and live!” [Refrain]
