1 In the Bible we are told
By the prophets wise of old
Of a fountain opened wide
In our blessèd Savior’s side.
To this fountain you may go,
For its waters freely flow;
It will wash you from your sin,
Make you clean without, within.

There’s a fountain opened wide
In our Savior’s wounded side;
To this fountain come today,
It will wash your sins away.

2 Hear, O hear Him sweetly say,
"To this fountain come today;
It will give you liberty,
From your idols set you free.
Evil spirits He’ll cast out,
Cleanse your heart from every doubt;
Why not come and be made free?
It is open wide for thee." [Refrain]

3 I’m so glad that I’ve plunged in,
Been made free from every sin,
Daily walking in the light,
Bound to win in every fight.
Having fellowship so sweet,
Sitting low at Jesus’ feet,
In this way I mean to stand,
Till I reach the glory land. [Refrain]
