1 O cross of shame and anguish,
Dark, fathomless, unknown;
O fount of grace and glory,
O thou tide of love divine,
Flow on till every nation
Shall tell thy pow’r to save–
The healing cleansing power
In the flowing crimson wave.

Refrain:
The crimson tide is flowing free,
For thee, dear one, for thee, for thee,
Come, bathe thy weary, sin-sick soul,
It’s healing tide shall make thee whole.

2 The crimson wave is flowing,
Is flowing now for thee;
Behold the fountain open wide
Upon Mount Calvary,
That crimson wave is flowing,
Dear sinner, ’tis for thee;
Come with thy heavy burden,
For the tide is full and free. [Refrain]

3 Behold by faith a Savior
Upon th’accursed tree;
Behold Him bleeding, dying there,
And this for you and me!
Come to this healing fountain,
O haste without delay,
And ’neath its wave of crimson
Wash thy load of sin away. [Refrain]

4 Behold your Savior pleading,
His mercy now is free;
Come, lest the tide receding,
Never more avail for thee,
That fountain now is open,
The spirit striving still;
To all the invitation
Gives: “Come, whosoever will.” [Refrain]
