The Gospel Call

Verse 1:
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”
“And take the water of life!”
O blessed call!
Good news to all
Who tire of sin and strife.

Refrain:
The Spirit says, “Come!”
(The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”)
The bride says, “Come!”
(The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”)
And take of the water of life freely.
(And take of the water of life, of life, The water of life freely.)
The Spirit says, “Come!”
(The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”)
The bride says, “Come!”
(The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”)
And take of the water of life freely.
(And take of the water of life, of life, The water of life freely.)

Verse 2:
Let ev’ry one who hears, say “Come!”
And joyful witness give;
I heard the sound,
The stream I found,
I drank, and now I live!

Verse 3:
Ye souls who are athirst forsake
Your broken cisterns first;
Then come, partake,
One draught will slake
Your soul’s consuming thrist.

Verse 4:
Yes, whosoever will may come,
Your longings Christ can fill;
The stream is free
To you and me,
And whosoever will.
