Hymn/Song Information

Behold the well of life appears Sought




Behold the well of life appears,
Sought for by men four thousand years!
Tell all mankindólet ev'ry gale
Bear round the earth the pleasing tale.


Bid each diseased soul come here;
You lame, you blind, you sick, draw near!
Behold, this true medic'nal stream
Heals maladies of ev'ry name!


The blind rejoice to see the sun,
The lame lay by their crutch and run;
Hark! from the dumb man's loosen'd tongue
Breaks forth the raptur'd, grateful song!


The deaf too taste, and wond'ring hear,
The joyful sound salutes their ear;
The feeble drink the healing stream,
And vigor shoots through all their frame.


This stream shall all our wants supply;
Impoverish'd souls, why should you die!
The Spirit says, "Whoever will,
May hither come and drink his fill."


Let the glad tidings reach the dead;
This river runs through death's dark shade:
Where'er it comes, this living spring
Gives life and health to every thing.


You thirsty souls, no more complain;
Our God has smote the rock again;
At Calvary the stream ran down
From the pierc'd side of God's own Son!


While through life's barren waste we stray,
This steam shall follow all the way!
Best flow'rs shall spring where'er it flows,
And deserts blossom as the rose!


What though the desert's heat annoy,
These waters still renew our joy;
And while we drink this cheering spring,
Upon its bank we sit and sing.
