There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood

Text: William Cowper, 1731-1800 
Tune: CLEANSING FOUNTAIN, Meter: CMD


1.        There is a fountain filled with blood         drawn from Emmanuel'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. 2.        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. 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.         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. 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.         And shall be till I die,         and shall be till I die;         redeeming love has been my theme,         and shall be till I die. 5.        Then in a nobler, sweeter song,         I'll sing thy power to save,         when this poor lisping, stammering tongue         lies silent in the grave.         Lies silent in the grave,         lies silent in the grave;         when this poor lisping, stammering tongue         lies silent in the grave.
