“The streams … make glad the city of God.” Ps. 46. 4

T. Kelly             8.7.4.

1
See, from Zion’s sacred mountain,
 Streams of living water flow;
 God has opened there a fountain,
 That supplies the plains below;
 They are blessèd
 Who its sovereign virtues know.

2
Through ten thousand channels flowing,
 Streams of mercy find their way;
 Life, and health, and joy bestowing,
 Making all around look gay;
 O believer!
 All thy sins are washed away.

3
Gladdened by the flowing treasure,
 All enriching as it goes;
 Lo, the desert smiles with pleasure,
 Buds and blossoms as the rose;
 Every sinner
 Sings for joy where’er it flows.

4
Trees of life the banks adorning,
 Yield their fruit to all around,
 Those who eat are saved from mourning;
 Pleasure comes and hopes abound;
 Fair their portion!
 Endless life with glory crowned.
