1 Blessed be the fountain of life today!
Flowing free, flowing free,
There the soul may wash all its guilt away,
In that fountain of life, flowing free!

Refrain:
Oh! the blessed fountain of life! freely flowing,
To that blessed fountain,
I’ll go and I’ll wash, and be clean.

2 Many have been cleansed in that fount of sin,
Flowing free, flowing free,
Many yet, will come, and will wash therein,
Blessed fountain of life, flowing free! [Refrain]

3 Linger not away from this fountain pure,
Flowing free, flowing free,
For the guilty soul ‘tis a wondrous cure,
Blessed fountain of life, flowing free! [Refrain]
