8.7.8.7.


1
NOW that wonderous, living story
Would our lips delight to tell:
How the Lord of life and glory
Came in love with men to dwell.
2
How in deep, divine compassion,
Once He sat at Sychar's well;
Here as Man in form and fashion -
God came down with men to dwell!
3
As the Lamb of God He suffered
For the sins He knew so well;
On the cross Himself He offered,
That thou mightest with Him dwell.
4
Come to Him! His heart so tender,
And His grace would Thee compel;
Yield to Him in full surrender,
And with Him for ever dwell!
5
Living water He would give thee;
Satisfied, thy praise shall swell
To the God who gives so freely,
Who would have thee with Him dwell.
6
Ask then for the Spirit Holy -
He who is the springing well,
Power for life and joy within thee -
He would come with thee to dwell.
