Sacred Stream 267t

Tune: Henry Goodwin Mann, 1869
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1719
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
There is a stream whose gentle flow
Supplies the city of our God;
Life, love and joy still gliding through
And wat’ring our divine abode.

That sacred stream, that Holy Word,
Supports our faith, our fear controls;
Sweet peace thy promises afford,
And gives new strength to fainting souls.
