Representative Text

1 O wandering one, come to the fountain of cleansing,
And wash from thy soul all defilement and stain;
Repentant one, come, there is perfect atonement,
Salvation for thee through the Lamb that was slain.

Refrain:
Oh, come to the fountain, life's freeflowing fountain,
And, washed in its current, thou shalt be made whole,
Accept offered pardon, now Jesus is calling,
O weary one, come, and find rest for thy soul.

2 This fountain was opened by infinite mercy,
So perishing souls might be saved by its flow;
Then, erring one, come, though thy sins be as scarlet,
They shall in its tide become whiter than snow. [Refrain]

3 From paths that lead downward to death everlasting,
From wanderings lonely through sin's dreary night;
Oh, come to this fount and receive life eternal,
And journey with joy to the city of light. [Refrain]

4 Come, sorrowing one, at this peace-giving fountain
The broken in spirit find griefs sweetest balm;
O way-farer out in life's storm-beaten deserts,
Awaiting thee here there is refuge and calm. [Refrain]
