1024. The Fountain of Cleansing

Oh, come to the fountain of cleansing,
Dear sinner, why longer delay?
The Savior is earnestly pleading,
The fountain is open today.

Refrain:
Then come, sinner, come
To the fountain so full and so free;
Be cleansed from your sin,
Be made pure within,
The fountain is open for thee.

Thy sins though like scarlet or crimson,
His love as a river doth flow;
Oh, plunge in this fountain of cleansing,
And thou shalt be whiter than snow.

A voice from the cross, “It is finished!”
The fountain for sin opened wide;
The purchase of life and salvation
Through Jesus, the Lamb crucified.

Then come, sinner, come to the fountain
And plunge in its soul-cleansing wave;
Launch out on the infinite mercy,
Of Jesus, the Mighty to save.
