Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I came to the fountain that cleanseth from sin,
The life-giving fountain where millions have been;
I came in my weakness, o’erburdened with care,
To find my Redeemer and Saviour was there.

Waiting for me, waiting for me,
Jesus, my Saviour, is waiting for me;
Still at the Fount, oft would I be,
Where Jesus, my Saviour,
Is waiting for me.

2 He saw me approaching, and tenderly said,
To purchase thy ransom, My blood I have shed;
And if thou art willing just now to believe,
The light of my Spirit thy soul shall receive. [Refrain]

3 I flew to his mercy, O joyful surprise,
For lo, my Redeemer had opened mine eyes;
I flew to the refuge no other could give,
And faithfully promised for Jesus to live. [Refrain]

4 And now in his presence I walk with delight,
And feel his protection by day and by night;
I think of the fountain so precious and free,
Where Jesus, my Saviour, was waiting for me. [Refrain]
