jbty^c Fountain of Life.
m 1 OEE, from Zion's sacred mountain, O Streams of living water flow! God has opened there a fountain,
That supplies the plains below:
They are blessed, i
"Who its sovereign virtues know. $
2 Through ten thousand channels flowing^ |
Streams of mercy find their way; 5
Life, ai>d health, and joy bestowing, *
taking all around look gay: 5
mf O ye nations! j
f Hail the long-expected day. I
mf 3 Gladdened by the flowing treasure, i
All-enriching as it goes; *
Lo, the desert smiles with pleasure,— J
Buds and blossoms as the rose: j
Every object }
Sings for joy where'er it flows. j
4 Trees of life, the banks adorning, J
Yield their fruit to all around; j
Those who eat are saved from mourning, I
Pleasure comes, and hopes abound; J
Fair their portion!— i
f Endless life, with glory crowned. I

| Hark! how he calls the tender lamb?,
j And folds them in his arms!

And yield them up to thee;
4 Ye little flock! with pleasure hear,—
mp 5 If orphans they are left behind,
— Thy guardian care we trust;—
That care shall heal our bleeding hearts, p If weeping o'er their dust.
1 TTOW large the promise—how divine,
"I '11 be a God to thee and thine,
2 The words of his extensive love,
From age to age, endure;'
m 1 A LORD! encouraged by thy grace,
2 Wash it from every stain of guilt,
And let this child be sanctified;
3 We ask not, for it, earthly bliss, j
Or earthly honors, wealth or fame: <
The sum of our request is this— j
That it may love and fear thy name. ♦
4 This infant we, by faith, commit j
To thy kind love and guardian care; *
p We lay it at the Saviour's feet, j
> He will not let it perish there. * I 3 Jesus the ancient faith confirms,
| To our forefathers given;
* He takes young children in ms arms,
| And calls them heirs of heaven.
J mf 4 Our God,—how faithful are his ways! | His love endures the same;
i Nor, from the promise of his grace,
} mp Blots out the children's name.

Like him, in grace and knowledge, grow,
dol 3 Sweet were his words, and kind his look,
mf 4 When Jesus into Salem rode,

\ Could we forget our Saviour's praise,
\ The stones themselves would sing.
