    This was great! Thanks! When I tried to copy and paste (with attribution) the chords appeared with some songs’ words but not with other songs. I don’t understand that, but I was able to find some chords that will be useful with my autoharp and my little audience. Thank you!

    Having the words is very helpful. Is there a way to access sheet music, as our elderly organist is not familiar with guitar chords or technology ?

    Thinking of using about 5 or 6 of the songs in congregational worship time at Church of Christ. Thank you for putting the songs up. I’m 78 YO

    Only the author (Sidney E. Cox, 1887-1975) truly knows what the song refers to. But it fits the description of the stream flowing from the temple, during the millennium, which grows deeper and wider as it leaves the temple (Ps 46:4, Ezek 47:1). A stream similarly flows from the throne in the new heavens and earth (Rev 22:1). Believers can expect to see both one day.

    This song was originally published in 1931 by The Salvation Army, USA Southern Territory, and subsequently published in 1965.

    As for the ‘meaning of the song,’ one is led to believe, by the verses, that the song describes the fountain that flowed from Jesus’ side on Calvary…

    Verse 1 states:

    There’s a wondrous fountain filled with living water,
    Flowing from the Savior’s wounded side.
    There’s an invitation to the heavy laden
    To this fountain flowing deep and wide.
