1 Down at the cross, on Calvary’s mountain,
Where mercies flow,
I plung’d in the redeeming fountain,
Washed whiter than the snow.
When nothing in the whole creation
Could purchase peace,
My Saviour brought His free salvation,
Gave me complete release.
Brothers, wont you hear the story?
See the fountain flow!
Oh, glory in the highest, glory!
Jesus saves me, this I know.
2 When lost in sin, my all I squandered,
Far from the fold;
My Saviour sought me where I wandered,
Gave me His wealth untold.
All bonds of sin and Satan rending,
Christ made me whole;
I’ll ne’er forget that joy transcending,
When Jesus sav’d my soul. [Refrain]
3 All round my way the sun is shining,
Darkness has fled;
On Jesus’ breast I am reclining,
Daily by Him I’m fed.
My Lord has cast His robe around me,
No more I’ll roam;
The Shepherd of the sheep has found me,
Jesus has brought me home. [Refrain]
