For SATB Choir and Organ. An ecstatic setting of the famous Cowper hymn text. Chromatic and rhapsodic, moderately difficult but well worth the effort!

Lyrics

There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel's veins;
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.

The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day;
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.

 

Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its pow'r,
Till all the ransomed Church of God
Be saved, to sin no more.

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.

Lord, I believe thou hast prepared,
Unworthy though I be,
For me a blood-bought, free reward,
A golden harp for me!

There in a nobler, sweeter song,
I'll sing Thy power to save,
When this poor, lisping, stammering tongue
Is ransomed from the grave.
