Beneath Moriah’s rocky side
      A gentle fountain springs,

At the Foot of Carmel, June 1839
Isaiah 8:6

 

Beneath Moriah’s rocky side
      A gentle fountain springs,
Silent and soft its waters glide,
      Like the peace the Sprit brings.
The thirsty Arab stoops to drink
      Of the cool and quiet wave,
And the thirsty spirit stops to think
      Of Him who came to save.

Siloam is the fountain’s name,
      It means One sent from God;
And thus the holy Saviour’s fame,
      It gently spreads abroad.
O grant that I, like this sweet well,
      May Jesus’ image bear,
And spend my life, my all, to tell
      How full his mercies are.
