8,7.
by A.P. Cecil
1
Broken heart! the fountain's open,
 
Christ hath died upon the tree,
 
All the powers of hell are shaken,
 
Grace flows down from God to thee.
1 Peter 2:24

God Himself, the Source, the Fountain,
 
Christ the Way the waters flow,
 
By the Spirit down from heaven,
 
To the thirsty heart below.
John 14:6; Galatians 4:6; John 7:37-39; John 4:14

Now's the time, the time accepted,
 
Now to thee God's light hath shone;
 
Christ God's love hath manifested,
 
He the finished work hath done.
2 Corinthians 6:2; 1 John 4:9; John 17:4

By one righteousness completed,
 
Adam's life receives its doom;
 
Jesus Christ, in glory seated,
 
Everlasting life hath won.
Romans 5:8; Hebrews 1:3; Hebrews 8:1; Hebrews 10:12; Hebrews 12:2

Broken heart! the river's flowing,
 
Haste! delay not! yet there's room;
 
Hear the word of God beseeching,
 
"Whosoever thirsts may come."
