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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

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.
