281. L. M. Anonymous. Gospel Invitation.
1 Come to the living waters, come!
Gladly obey your Maker's call: --
Return, ye weary wand'rers, home,
And find his grace is free for all.
2 See from the rock a fountain rise;
For you in healing streams it rolls;
Money ye need not bring, nor price,
Ye weary, heavy-laden souls.
3 In search of empty joys below,
Why toil with unavailing strife?
Whither, ah! whither would ye go?
Christ hath the words of endless life.
4 Your willing ears and hearts incline,
His words believingly receive;
Quicken'd, you then, by faith divine,
A heavenly life on earth shall live.
