The Crystal Fountain

Representative Text

1 Oh, come to the bright crystal fountain,
Its waters, though priceless, are free;
Oh, weary and heavily laden,
'Tis flowing with mercy for thee.

Flowing for thee,
Flowing for thee,
The bright crystal fountain of mercy, so free,
Is flowing for thee.

2 Draw near, tho' thy sins are as scarlet,
Their stain it will quickly remove;
Draw near to the pitying Savior,
The fountain of infinite love. [Chorus]

3 Oh, thou who art thirsty for pardon,
And faint with the turmoil and strife,
Now, now is the day of salvation,
Come, drink from the fountain of life. [Chorus]
