1 O do not falter, sinful one,

Go, wash, and be clean!

Refrain:
Go, wash, and be clean;
Go, wash, and be clean;
The fount of love is open wide;
Go, wash, and be clean!

2 Yes, there's a fountain deep and wide
To cleanse the world from sin;
Art thou with sin dissatisfied?
Go, wash, and be clean! [Refrain]

3 O never mind the doubts that rise;
By faith you must step in:
God writes His welcome on the gate;
Go, wash, and be clean! [Refrain]

4 The precious blood on Calvary shed
Can surely purge thy sin;
It is a sanctifying flood;
Go, wash, and be clean! [Refrain]

5 O sinner, even now's the time;
Today on Jesus lean;
Trust the atonement He has made;
Go, wash, and be clean! [Refrai]
