Overholtzerin Salvation Songs for Children No. Three. All rights reserved.1. 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.Refrain: Deep and wide, Deep and wide, There’s a fountain flowing deep and wide, Yes ’tis deep and wide, Deep and wide, There’s a fountain flowing deep and wide.2. Sweet and gracious is the Voice that bids us welcome— Cease your weary wand’ring and abide— Where the healing waters flow from living fountains, Fountains that are pure, and deep and wide.3. There is life abundant— gift from God our Father— Source, whence ev’ry need may be supplied— It is offered freely, without price or money, Drink from Heav’nly fountains, deep and wide.
