Representative Text

1 We praise the name of Him who came,
To the cross to save from sin;
Oh hear His voice make Him your choice,
Oh come He will take you in.

Whosoever, whosoever, whosoever will,
May drink and live,
There’s a fountain, precious fountain,
At the Cross where His life He gave.

2 Oh precious spring, new life to bring,
From His side gushed for that day;
The way is free to you and me,
Who come by the blood-bought way. [Refrain]

3 The glory land is near at hand,
And His face we soon shall see;
What joy to share His glory there,
Come now, He is calling thee. [Refrain]
