Christ: The Spring of Living Water

Here is a hymn I wrote for English class.

Scriptural Basis:

Isaiah 41:17-20

Isaiah 55:1-3

John 4: 13-14

Tune:

The tune is to the Stuttgart version of Come Thou Long Expected Jesus.

The tune was composed by Christian F. Witt and adapted by Henry J. Gauntlett.


Hymn:

Come ye, hither, poor and needy.

Call on Christ, the risen king.

Those that thirst for living water,

Will find rest for in him alone.

.

Desert souls of needy sinners,

Will be changed with living streams,

Barren lands are filled with water,

For the mighty Christ redeems.

.

Thirst will grow with any other,

Nothing else will satisfy,

Christ alone will hear your calling,

And will hearken to your cry.

.

Come to me, the Saviour calls you,

Buy this water without cost.

Free for all who thirst for mercy,

In all else your hope is lost. 

.

In him alone is thirst replenished,

Hear his pleading call today,

Come to him, the great Redeemer,

You will never thirst again.

.

Jesus Christ, the stream of blessings,

He’s the fountain of true life.

Praise to him, our glorious Saviour,

Praise his great redeeming might.
