Full Text

1 To the fountain of Jesus' blood,
My sin and need I brought,
By simple faith received from Him,
The cleansing I sought.

He cleanses, He cleanses, and fills my soul with light
He saves me, He saves me from sin and all its blight;
He cleanses, He cleasnses, and frees from chains that bound,
I'll love Him, I'll serve Him,
And make His praise resound.

2 'Neath the shelter of precious blood
That flowed from Jesus' side,
My conscience, freed from all its fears,
Can peacefully abide. [Chorus]

3 Of the power of the Saviour's blood,
To blot out ev'ry stain,
My lips the tidings would fort tell,
and sing the glad refrain. [Chorus]

4 To the fountain of Jesus' blood,
O come and life receive,
There's cleansing in the sacred fount
For all who will believe. [Chorus]
