Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Sins of years are washed away

Representative Text

1 Sins of years are washed away,
Blackest stains become as snow,
Darkest night is chang'd to-day,
When you to the Fountain go.

2 Doubts and fears are borne along
On the current's ceaseless flow,
Sorrow changes into song,
When you to the Fountain go.

3 East and wealth become as dross,
Worthless, earth's delight and show,
All your boast is in the Cross,
When you to the Fountain go.

4 Selfishness is lost in love,
Love for Him whose love you know,
All your treasure is above,
When you to the Fountain go.

5 In His service is delight,
Never will you fear the foe,
Armed by King Jehovah's might,
When you to the Fountain go.
