Author: Mrs. M. J. Harris Hymnal: Favorite Hymns of Praise #32 (1967) Hymnal Title: Favorite Hymns of Praise First Line: When I saw the cleansing fountain Refrain First Line: I will praise Him! Lyrics:
1 When I saw the cleansing fountain,
Open wide for all my sin,
I obeyed the Spirit’s wooing
When He said, Wilt thou be clean?
I will praise Him! I will praise Him!
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;
Give Him glory, all ye people,
For His blood can wash away each stain.
2 Tho' the way seems straight and narrow,
All I claimed was swept away;
My ambitions, plans, and wishes,
At my feet in ashes lay. (Chorus)
3 Then God’s fire upon the altar
Of my heart was set aflame;
I shall never cease to praise Him,
Glory, glory to His name! (Chorus)
4 Blessèd be the name of Jesus!
I’m so glad He took me in;
He’s forgiven my transgressions,
He has cleansed my heart from sin. (Chorus)
5 Glory, glory to the Father!
Glory, glory to the Son!
Glory, glory to the Spirit!
Glory to the Three in One! (Chorus) Topics: Praise of Christ; Praise of Christ Tune Title: [When I saw the cleansing fountain]
I Will Praise Him
