There Is a Fountain

      There Is a Fountain (3/30/2012)

Words:  William Cowper
Music:   Lowell Mason

There is a fountain filled with blood,
Drawn from Immanuel’s veins;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.
Lose all their guilty stains,
Lose all their guilty stains;
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.
Wash all my sins away,
Wash all my sins away;
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.

Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its power,
Till all the ransomed church of God
Be saved to sin no more.
Be saved to sin no more,
Be saved to sin no more;
Till all the ransomed 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.
And shall be till I die,
And shall be till I die;
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.

One Response to There Is a Fountain

  1. I have to wonder why hymnbook editors seem to feel compelled to omit the usual final stanza, leaving us in the grave “till I die,” instead of letting us sing what happens when “Then in a nobler, sweeter song.” Also, I can’t believe that you’ve never done “Jesus, Lover of My Soul.”
