1 Oh, come to the fountain of cleansing,
Dear sinner, why longer delay?
The Savior is earnestly pleading,
The fountain is open today.

Then come, sinner, come
To the fountain so full and so free;
Be cleansed from your sin,
Be made pure within,
The fountain is open for thee.

2 Thy sins though like scarlet or crimson,
His love as a river doth flow;
Oh, plunge in this fountain of cleansing,
And thou shalt be whiter than snow. [Refrain]

3 A voice from the cross, “It is finished!”
The fountain for sin opened wide;
The purchase of life and salvation
Through Jesus, the Lamb crucified. [Refrain]

4 Then come, sinner, come to the fountain
And plunge in its soul-cleansing wave;
Launch out on the infinite mercy,
Of Jesus, the Mighty to save. [Refrain]
