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]
