There's a Fountain Free

Lyrics: Mrs. M.B.C. Slade
Music: Dr. A.B. Everett

There's a fountain free,
'Tis for you and me:
Let us haste, O, haste to its brink;
'Tis the fount of love
From the Source above,
And He bids us all freely drink.

There's a living stream,
With a crystal gleam:
From the throne of life now it flows;
While the waters roll
Let the weary soul
Hear the call that forth freely goes.

There's a living well
And its waters swell
And eternal life they can give;
And we joyful sing,
Ever spring, O Spring,
As we haste to drink and to live.

There's a rock that's cleft
And no soul is left,
That may not its pure waters share;
'Tis for you and me,
And its stream I see:
Let us hasten joyfully there.

Will you come to the fountain free?
Will you come? 'Tis for you and me;
Thirsty soul, hear the welcome call:
'Tis a fountain opened for all
