Representative Text

1 Come to the fount of mercy,
Come with a broken heart;
Jesus will there receive thee,
Come to him as thou art,—
Sinful and poor and needy,
Helpless and weak and blind,
Come to the fount of mercy,
Pardon thy soul shall find.

Refrain:
Come to the fount of mercy,
Come with a broken heart;
Jesus will there receive thee,
Come to him as thou art.

2 Jesus has borne thy sorrow,
Jesus for thee has died;
Think of the nails that pierced him,
Think of his wounded side,
Now while his Spirit pleading
Points to the narrow gate,
Come to the fount of mercy,
Come, ere it be too late. [Refrain]

3 Come to the fount of mercy,
Why wilt thou yet delay?
Yonder a light is beaming,
Follow its golden ray;
Come to the fount of mercy,
There in contrition bow;
Jesus thy Lord is waiting,
Waiting to save thee now. [Refrain]
