1 So near the cleansing Fountain,
In this the Gospel day,
O guilty one! awaken,
And wash thy sins away.

Salvation, peace and pardon
The Lord will freely give;
The way of life is easy,
’Tis only, Look and live.

2 So near the refuge city,
Then why not enter in?
Pass through the open gateway
And life eternal win. [Refrain]

3 So near the fold of Jesus,
No longer stay outside;
Come, find a peaceful shelter,
Where God’s redeemed abide. [Refrain]

4 So near the loving Savior,
Why stand in fear and doubt?
In simple faith approach Him,
He will not cast thee out. [Refrain]

5 So near the Great Physician,
Go, touch His garment’s hem;
See, while His saints adore Him,
What grace has done for them. [Refrain]

6 So near the Ark of safety,
Arise, and enter thou;
The storm of wrath is bursting!
O soul! escape it now! [Refrain]
