FOUNTAIN




Ho! ye despairing sinners, hear,
Ye thirsty, sin-sick souls draw near;
Here's water whose all-powerful stream
Shall quench your thirst, and wash you clean;
Its healing power has always wrought,
Beyond the reach of human thought.


Bethesda's pool is not like this,
Nor heals, nor cures such leprosies;
Nor Siloam's streams, nor Jordan's flood,
Could to my heart seem half so good;
'Tis Jesu's blood, that crimson sea,
That washeth guilt and filth away.


To this dear fountain I'll repair,
With all the wounds and pains I bear;
I'll keep my station near its side,
And wash, and drink, and there abide;
Nor from the sacred streams remove,
Till taken to their source above.
