THERE is a fountain fill'd with blood,

Drawn from Immanuel's veins;

And sinners plunged beneath that flood,

Lose all their guilty stains.

The dying thief rejoiced to see

That fountain in his day;

And there may I, though vile as he,

Wash all my sins away.

Dear dying Lamb, thy precious blood

Shall never lose its powers,

Till all the ransom'd church of God

Be saved to sin no more.

E'er since by faith, I saw the stream

Thy flowing wounds supply,

Redeeming love has been my theme,

And shall be till I die.

Then, in a nobler, sweeter song,

I'll sing thy power to save,

When this poor lisping, stammering tongue

Lies silent in the grave.
