Where Heavenly Joy Imparts 493

Tune: W. C. Givens, 1909
Lyrics: Samuel Medley, 1789
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
O what amazing words of grace
Are in the gospel found;
Suited to ev'ry sinner's case
Who knows the joyful sound.


Come, then, with all your wants and wounds,
Your ev'ry burden bring;
Here love, unchanging love, abounds,
A deep celestial spring.

This spring with living water flows,
And heav'nly joy imparts;
Come, thirsty souls, your wants disclose,
And drink with thankful hearts.
