Christ’s Blood a Cleansing Fountain. John 19. 34
R. Burnham 8.7.
Mourning souls, by sin distressed,
Lost and ruined, void of good,
You can never be released,
But by faith in Jesus’ blood.
Richly flowed the crimson river,
Down Immanuel’s lovely side;
And that blood will you deliver,
Whensoever ’tis applied.
Christ is ready to receive you;
See his bloody cross appear.
From your sins he will relieve you,
And dissolve your every fear.
O behold the Lord expiring;
See the suffering Lamb of God!
And that love be much admiring,
Which appears in streams of blood.
