Representative Text

1 I stand beside the crimson stream
That flows from Calv’ry’s mount,
And long to wash away all sin,
Within its cleansing fount.

Now wash me, now wash me,
And cleanse me from sin;
Now wash me, now wash me,
And I shall be clean.

2 The blood of Christ alone will save
From guilt, and fear, and care;
His blood will sweetly purify,
When sought in earnest prayer.

Now wash me, now wash me,
And cleanse me from sin;
Now wash me, now wash me,
And I shall be clean.

3 I claim the promised blessing now,
Freedom from ev’ry sin,
The power to lead a holy life,
With Christ in God shut in.

Now wash me, now wash me,
And cleanse me from sin;
Now wash me, now wash me,
And I shall be clean.

4 I sin into the crimson stream,
Christ’s blood is now applied?
I rise again, redeemed by him,
And wholly purified.

Hallelujah! hallelujah!
I’m washed from all sin;
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Yes, now I am clean.
