Default Re: Favorite hymns of mine

Oh, Christ, He is the Fountain Anne R. Cousin (Words) Wm. R. Bradbury,(arr.)
I found the original words and arrangement at http://www.hymnary.org/hymn/WSSS1890/page/145

Oh, Christ, He is the Fountain, The deep sweet well of love; The streams of earth I’ve tasted, More deep I’ll drink a-bove; There to an ocean fullness His mercy doth ex-pand, And glo – ry, glo – ry dwelleth in Immanuel’s land, And glo – ry, glo – ry dwelleth in Immanuel’s land
With mer-cy and with judgment, My web of time He wove, and all the dews of sor-row Were lus-tered with His love; I’ll bless the hand that guided, I’ll bless the heart that plann’d, When thron’d where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land, When thron’d where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land
Oh! I am my Beloved’s, And my Be-lov-ed’s mine, He drew a trembling sin-ner, By cords of love di-vine; I stand up-on His meri – it, I know no oth – er stand, Not e’en where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land, Not e’en where glo-ry dwell-eth In Immanuel’s land



The Local Church Hymn Book (#1154) version I am more familiar with is on Youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZUY...UYfQA6gdI#t=12 Don't let your eyes stray OBW

I like the changes made to it, but like to see the original too. Original has a little "sweet bye and bye" flavor.
