        1. There is a fountain filled with blood
        Drawn from Immanuel's veins,
        And sinners plunged beneath that flood
        Lose all their guilty stains.

        2. The dying thief rejoiced to see
        That fountain in his day;
        And there have I, as vile as he,
        Washed all my sins away.

        3. Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
        Shall never lose its power
        Till all the ransomed Church of God
        Be saved to sin no more.

        4. 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.

        5. When this poor lisping, stammering tongue
        Lies silent in the grave,
        Then in a nobler, sweeter song
        I'll sing Thy power to save.
