The Gospel Pool 444t

Tune: Eld. Edmund Dumas, 1869
Lyrics: John Newton, 1779
Meter: Short Meter (6,6,8,6)
Beside the gospel pool,
Appointed for the poor,
From time to time my helpless soul
Has waited for a cure.

O would the Lord appear,
My malady to heal!
He knows how long Iíve languished here,
And what distress I feel.

Here then from day to day,
Iíll wait and hope and try;
Can Jesus hear a sinner pray,
Yet Suffer him to die?

No, He is full of grace,
He never will permit,
A soul that fain would see His face,
To perish at His feet.
