1. At the pool we long have been;
Angels cannot put us in;
We from danger cannot speed,
'Tis with us a time of need.

2. When we press to seek a cure,
Others make the water sure;
Then our aching hearts do bleed;
'Tis with us a time of need.

3. Let us see thee stand and say
"Sinner, rise and come away;
I for thee did groan and bleed,
Help to give in time of need."

4. "Healing mercy I bestow,
Satan, let the captive go;
Prisoned sinner, thou art freed,
All is done in time of need."

5. "Rise and walk in my commands;
Hasten through these desert lands;
Then enjoy the heavenly mead,
There shall be no time of need."
