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.

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]
