Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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.
