Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

78. There Is a Fountain

1 There is a fountain filled with blood
drawn from Immanuel's veins;
and sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
lose all their guilty stains:
lose all their guilty stains,
lose all their guilty stains;
and sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
lose all their guilty stains.

2 The dying thief rejoiced to see
that fountain in his day;
and there have I, though vile as he,
washed all my sins away:
washed all my sins away,
washed all my sins away;
and there have I, though vile as he,
washed all my sins away.

3 Thou dying Lamb, thy precious blood
shall never lose its pow'r
till all the ransomed church of God
be saved, to sin no more:
be saved, to sin no more,
be saved, to sin no more;
till all the ransomed church of God
be saved, to sin no more.

4 E'er since by faith I saw the stream
thy flowing wounds supply;
redeeming love has been my theme,
and shall be till I die:
and shall be till I die,
and shall be till I die,
redeeming love has been my theme,
and shall be till I die.

5 When this poor, faltering mortal tongue
lies silent in the grave,
then in a nobler, sweeter song
I'll sing thy pow'r to save:
I'll sing thy pow'r to save,
I'll sing thy pow'r to save;
then in a nobler, sweeter song
I'll sing thy pow'r to save.
