Daniel B. Towner


We cannot live without it,
Naught else can satisfy;
We need the living water
That cometh from on high.


Oh, come and take the water
He offers you today!
For still the Savior calleth,
Why will ye go away?

The fountain ever floweth,
Refreshing, pure and free.
Enough for all who need it,
Enough for you and me.


Whoever will, may take it,
For Christ the Savior’s sake;
But none may know the blessing,
Who will not come and take.
