1 There’s a fountain of cleansing, that springs from above;
There’s a stream flowing down from the cross;
There is peace in believing, there’s joy, hope and love,
And freedom from worry and loss.
O sinner, dear sinner, come listen, I pray,
And do not of happiness dream;
No longer delay, but plunge in today,
And wash in that beautiful stream.

Refrain:
Go wash in that beautiful stream,
Go wash in that beautiful stream;
No longer delay, but plunge in today,
And wash in that beautiful stream.

2 O, the guilt and the pain of the life that you live,
The poverty, sickness, and cost;
O come to the Savior, who pardon will give,
Who seeks and who saves what was lost.
O sinner, dear sinner, what more shall I say?
See yonder the water’s bright gleam;
No longer delay, but plunge in today,
And wash in that beautiful stream. [Refrain]

3 O, the joy and the peace of the life that I know,
The safety, and plenty and rest;
O come to the Savior, He’ll cleansing bestow,
And crown you at last with the blest.
O sinner, dear sinner, do come while you may,
Just follow the light’s guiding beam;
No longer delay, but plunge in today,
And wash in that beautiful stream. [Refrain]
