Sunday Hymns - Blessed Fountain of Blood

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    It flows from Jesus’ side;
    And I have plunged my guilty soul
    Beneath its cleansing tide.

        Blessed fountain of blood,
        I have plunged ’neath its flood;
        And now its cleansing billows roll,
        Through all my happy soul.

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    ’Tis streaming o’er my heart;
    Through all my soul its tranquil joy
    Enlivens every part.

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    Whose virtue stands between
    A barren land of sin and shame,
    And fields of living green.

    There is a blessed fount of blood,
    Which gladdens all my life;
    It saves me now, oh, joy to know,
    From sorrow, sin, and strife.
Daniel O. Teasley, pub.1911

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
