“And the Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let him that hears say, ‘Come.’ And let him that is thirsty come. And, whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”
There’s a tugging in my heart today
For a place I’ve never been;
It’s a place that’s fairer than any land—
A place with no sickness or sin.
I’m told there is no suffering
In that place not made with hands,
There’ll be no tears, sorrow or death
In Heaven—God’s eternal and perfect land.
For now, our journey’s rocky and steep
And we’re tempted to give up,
But when we think of the joy that awaits us,
We say, “Oh let me drink from the Master’s cup.”
Yes, the Master’s waiting to dry our tears
And quench our thirsty hearts
By giving us a drink from His cup of eternal life
That’s sufficient from the very start.
To drink from His cup is by invitation only—
For those who have turned from sin;
Only those who believe may drink from this cup
And into God’s Kingdom enter in.
To those who are lonely, the Lord says “Come;”
To those who are thirsty He pleads,
“Come and drink from My cup and you’ll discover for sure
My living water is all you’ll ever need.”
Oh, come to His fountain, oh weary one;
Yes, come and drink from His water so sweet.
If you come as a child, taking Jesus as Lord,
You’ll discover life so meaningfully complete.
“Come now and drink,” the Master says
To those so arid in soul;
Drink once from His cup and you’ll never thirst again
As His love transforms you and makes you whole.
