Hymn/Song Information

Ho ye that thirst approach the spring




Ho! ye that thirst,
approach the spring
Where living waters flow:
Free to that sacred fountain all
Without a price may go.


How long to streams
of false delight
Will ye in crowds repair?
How long your strength
and substance waste
On trifles light as air?


My stores afford
those rich supplies
That health and pleasure give:
Incline your ear, and come to Me;
The soul that hears shall live.


With you a cov’nant I will make,
that ever shall endure;
The hope which gladdened David’s heart
my mercy hath made sure.


Behold he comes! your leader comes,
with might and honour crowned;
A witness who shall spread my name
to earth’s remotest bound.


See! nations hasten to his call
from ev’ry distant shore;
Isles, yet unknown, shall bow to him,
and Isr’el’s God adore.


Seek ye the Lord,
while yet His ear
Is open to your call;
While offered mercy still is near,
Before His footstool fall.


Let sinners quit their evil ways
Their evil thoughts forego;
And God, when they
to Him return,
Returning grace will show.


He pardons with
o’erflowing love;
“For,” hear the voice divine!
“My nature is not like to yours,
Nor like your ways are Mine:


“But far as heaven’s
resplendent orbs
Beyond earth’s spot extend,
As far My thoughts,
as far My ways,
Your ways
and thoughts transcend.”
