Representative Text

1. Come with thy sins to the fountain,
Come with thy burden of grief;
Bury them deep in its waters,
There thou wilt find a relief.

Refrain:
Haste thee away, why wilt thou stay?
Risk not thy soul on a moment’s delay;
Jesus is waiting to save thee,
Mercy is pleading today.

2. Come as thou art to the fountain,
Jesus is waiting for thee;
What though thy sins are like crimson,
White as the snow they shall be. [Refrain]

3. These are the words of the Savior;
They who repent and believe,
They who are willing to trust Him,
Life at His hand shall receive. [Refrain]

4. Come and be healed at the fountain,
List to the peace speaking voice;
Over a sinner returning
Now let the angels rejoice. [Refrain]
