A Fountain opened for Sin and Uncleanness.
Come to Calvary's holy mountain,
Sinners ruin'd by the fall;
Here a pure and healing fountain
Flows to you, to me, to all,
In a full, perpetual tide,
Open'd when our Saviour died.
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.
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:--
He that drinks shall live for ever;
'Tis a soul-renewing flood:
God is faithful;--God will never
Break his covenant in blood,
Sign'd when our Redeemer died,
Seal'd when he was glorified.
