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.

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

244. Blessed Fountain of Blood

1 There is a blessed fount of blood,
It flows from Jesus’ side;
And I have plunged my guilty soul
Beneath its cleansing tide.

Refrain:
Blessed fountain of blood,
I have plunged ’neath its flood;
And now its cleansing billows roll,
Through all my happy soul.

2 There is a blessed fount of blood,
’Tis streaming o’er my heart;
Through all my soul its tranquil joy
Enlivens every part. [Refrain]

3 There is a blessed fount of blood,
Whose virtue stands between
A barren land of sin and shame,
And fields of living green. [Refrain]

4 There is a blessed fount of blood,
Which gladdens all my life;
It saves me now, oh, joy to know,
From sorrow, sin, and strife. [Refrain]
