        1. Come to Calvary's holy mountain,
        Sinners, ruined by the Fall;
        Here a pure and healing fountain
        Flows to you, to me, to all,
        In a full, perpetual tide,
        Opened when our Savior died.

        2. Come in poverty and meanness,
        Come defiled, without, within;
        From infection and uncleanness,
        From the leprosy of sin,
        Wash your robes and make them white;
        Ye shall walk with God in light.

        3. Come in sorrow and contrition,
        Wounded, impotent, and blind;
        Here the guilty free remission,
        Here the troubled peace, may find.
        Health this fountain will restore;
        He that drinks shall thirst no more.

        A. He that drinks shall live forever;
        Tis a soul-renewing flood.
        God is faithful; God will never
        Break His covenant of blood,
        Signed when our Redeemer died,
        Sealed when He was glorified.
