Forth from God’s glorious temple

Forth from God’s glorious temple
Bursts a great torrent divine,
A mighty flood through its entrance
Unto its boundary line.
  God’s living water
Brings the refreshing supply
Death has been swallowed completely
In the abundance of life.
Everything works to God’s glory
As unobstructed it flows;
Then, of the utmost importance,
All on the altar must go.
This water flows without limit;
All has been measured by God;
All things are now His possession,
Judged by His measuring rod.
Water of life, overflowing,
Now is a great rushing tide.
Man can no longer act freely;
By grace alone we abide.
