Representative Text

1 Down into the fountain I will humbly go;
Down into the fountain, making white as snow;
Though with sins of scarlet, and of crimson dyed,
I shall come up spotless from the saving tide.

Refrain:
To Calv’ry I will go,
The blessed Word I know,
The precious blood of Jesus cleanseth white as snow;
His voice is calling still
To “whosoever will,”
Down into the fountain I will humbly go.

2 Down into the fountain, deeper, deeper still,
Till the grace of Jesus all my being fill;
Till the Holy Spirit works the change divine,
Making “earthen vessels” with his glory shine. [Refrain]

3 Down into the fountain flowing from the cross,
Let the mighty currents sweep away all dross;
Ever there abiding thro’ his wondrous love,
Washed and cleansed forever for the feast above. [Refrain]
