Christ’s Blood a Cleansing Fountain. John 19. 34

R. Burnham                                        8.7.

1
Mourning souls, by sin distressed,
Lost and ruined, void of good,
You can never be released,
But by faith in Jesus’ blood.

2
Richly flowed the crimson river,
Down Immanuel’s lovely side;
And that blood will you deliver,
Whensoever ’tis applied.

3
Christ is ready to receive you;
See his bloody cross appear.
From your sins he will relieve you,
And dissolve your every fear.

4
O behold the Lord expiring;
See the suffering Lamb of God!
And that love be much admiring,
Which appears in streams of blood.
