Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 I heard my loving Saviour say,
There’s room at the fountain for me,
Come wash the stains of sin away,
There’s room at the fountain for thee.

Refrain:
Room, room, yes, there is room,
There’s room at the fountain for thee,
Room, room, yes, there is room,
There’s room at the fountain for thee.

2 I came to him my sins confessed,
There’s room at the fountain for me,
When I gave up my heart was blest,
There’s room at the fountain for thee. [Refrain]

3 I plung’d beneath the crimson tide,
There’s room at the fountain for me,
And now by faith am sanctified,
There’s room at the fountain for thee. [Refrain]

4 I found the crimson stream I know,
There’s room at the fountain for me,
His blood has wash’d me white as snow,
There’s room at the fountain for thee. [Refrain]

5 He cleans’d my heart from inbred sin,
There’s room at the fountain for me,
And now he keeps me pure within,
There’s room at the fountain for thee. [Refrain]

6 I’ll praise him while he gives me breath,
There’s room at the fountain for me,
He saved me from an awful death,
There’s room at the fountain for thee. [Refrain]

7 His blood was shed but once for all,
There’s room at the fountain for me;
O don’t reject sweet Mercy’s call,
There’s room at the fountain for thee. [Refrain]

8 We’ll sing with all the saints above,
There’s room at the fountain for me;
And praise him for redeeming love,
There’s room at the fountain for thee. [Refrain]
