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 In the blessèd crimson fountain
I’ve been washed and saved from sin,
He who died on Calvary’s mountain
Gives me precious peace within.

Refrain:
O the blessèd crimson fountain,
Free for all its waters flow;
Come and test its healing merit—
It will make you white as snow.

2 Though life’s road is rough and dreary,
Though through dangers I must go,
Christ is with me as I journey,
And no harm my soul shall know. [Refrain]

3 I will trust my loving Savior,
Faithful will I strive to be,
Till I reach the land of promise,
And His wondrous glory see. [Refrain]
