Representative Text

1 In Calv’ry’s fountain, deep and wide,
I’ll wash my guilty soul;
And in the Rock of Ages hide,
When storms of sorrow roll.

If we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
If we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
We have fellowship,
We have fellowship,
We have fellowship one with another,
And the blood of Jesus Christ his Son,
Cleanseth us from all sin.

2 A joy there is to earth unknown,
A gift from heav’n above;
Its light around my pathway shone,
Through everlasting love. [Refrain]

3 O let me follow Jesus still,
Upon this shining way,
And ‘mid life’s changeful good and ill,
Find his unchanging day. [Refrain]

4 All glory to the Lamb of God,
Who takes away my sin;
He sweetly sheds his love abroad,
And gives me peace within. [Refrain]
