I’ve got a river of life flowing within me

1
I’ve got a river of life flowing within me;
It makes the lame to walk and the blind to see.
It opens prison doors, sets the captives free.
I’ve got a river of life flowing within me.
  Spring up, O well, within my spirit!
Rise up and tell, so all can hear it!
Spring up, O well, so I experience
That life abundantly.
2
I’ve got a river of life flowing within me;
It started gushing up when God set me free.
That I keep the flow is my only plea.
I’ve got a river of life springing within me.
3
Once I call His name there’s a flow within;
It turns me from my day, makes Him Lord again.
As my spirit burns, Satan cannot win.
Calling, “Oh Lord Jesus,” keeps the flow within.

“Spring up O Well within my soul

Spring up O Well let it overflow

Spring up O Well Flow out through me

Spring up O Well Set Others free”

That’s how our Former Pastor (whose gone on to be with the Lord) used to sing it!

Does anyone know WHEN this hymn was written? Internet search produces nothing. Who is the author and what year?

Mary A. Lathbury Wrote the original hymn, and someone change the “flowing out of me” to an inward focused “flowing within me”.
