Do You Feel Your Need of Cleansing?

Do you feel your need of cleansing?

Author: John McPhail
Tune: [Do you feel your need of cleansing]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Do you feel your need of cleansing,
Are you conscious that your sin
Hath defiled your moral nature,
And polluted all within?
There is still a fountain opened
In the side of God's dear Son,
And today the Lord is calling,
"Whosoever will, may come."

Chorus:
Then for cleansing precious cleansing,
To the fountain you may go,
And tho' sinful And polluted,
Be made whiter than the snow.

2 Do you feel you must have cleansing,
Are you sinking in despair?
Trust in Jesus, now, poor sinner,
For the fountain still is there;
Precious blood, the blood of Jesus
Now atones for all your sin,
And this moment He will pardon,
If you'll only "look to Him." [Chorus]

3 Do you long to be made holy,
And to know God's saving grace?
Just believe and trust Him fully,
And His saving love embrace;
He will give you life eternal,
Lift you up and take you in,
And will cleanse and save you fully,
From the last remains of sin. [Chorus]
