Ho Everyone That Thirsteth Come Where


Ho! every one that thirsteth, come.
Where living waters flow;
Come, buy, eat, drink, my wine, and milk,
Though ye no worth can show.
Why do ye spend your cost, and pains,
On empty earthly toys?
Hear me, and eat the good; delight
Your souls with heavenly joys.

Incline your ear, and come to me,
Hear, and your souls shall live;
I’ll, the sure mercies of my son,
By endless covenant, give.
Him, witness to my flock, I’ve given,
And set him on a throne.
The gentile nations thou shalt call,
And they to thee shall run:

Because thy God, the Holy One,
Hath glorified thee.
Seek ye the Lord, in finding time;
And while he’s near, call ye.
Let wicked men forsake their ways,
And turn unto the Lord;
Our God, in his great mercy, will,
With pardon, them reward.
