Come to the Fountain

Verse 1:
Come with thy sins to the fountain,
Come with thy burden of grief;
Bury them deep in its waters,
There thou wilt find a relief.

Refrain:
Haste thee away, why wilt thou stay?
Risk not thy soul on a moment’s delay;
Jesus is waiting to save thee,
Mercy is pleading today.

Verse 2:
Come as thou art to the fountain,
Jesus is waiting for thee;
What tho’ thy sins are like crimson,
White as the snow they shall be.

Verse 3:
These are the words of the Saviour;
They who repent and believe,
They who are willing to trust Him,
Life at His hand shall receive.

Verse 4:
Come and be healed at the fountain,
List to the peace-speaking voice;
Over a sinner returning
Now let the angels rejoice.

Fanny J. Crosby and Geo. C. Stebbins 1887
