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.

Come to this fountain

Representative Text

1 There’s a fountain for sins that is open to all
Who will come and be cleansed there today;
In that fountain so free there is cleansing for thee,
It can wash all transgressions away;
For no matter how dark are the stains of thy sin
You can now to this cleansing stream go;
For thy sins be as scarlet or crimsoned with red
You can wash and be whiter than snow.

O come to this fountain, be cleans’d from thy sin,
This fountain now flowing so free;
O come then today and no longer delay,
Come and wash and be whiter than snow.

2 In this fountain for sin many souls have been cleans’d,
Many thousands whose sins were deep-dyed;
And today they are singing around the bright throne
There so near to the dear Saviour’s side.
There is cleansing for thee at this fountain of sin,
You can come to the life-giving flow,
And be cleanse’d from the stain of thy every sin,
You can wash and be whiter than snow. [Refrain]

3 To that fountain today the dear Saviour now calls,
Ev’ry sinner to come and be free
From the stains of the sin that so blacken the soul,
Sinner, haste to that fountain to flee.
There is cleansing right now, there is pardon complete,
To the fountain today will you go
And be cleans’d from the sin ere it may be too late,
There to wash and be whiter than snow. [Refrain]
