1 My Saviour's pierced side
Pour'd out a double flood;
By water we are purify'd,
Ad pardon'd by thy blood.

Whose death was ty desert,
And humbly view the living stream
Flow from his breaking heart.

3 There on the cursed tree
In dying pangs he lies,
Fulfills his Father's great drecree,
And all our wants supplies.

4 Thus the Redeemer came,
By water and by blood;
And when the Spirit speaks the same,
We feel his witness good.

5 LORD, cleanse my soul from sin;
Nor let thy grace depart;
Great comforter, abide within
And witness to my heart.
