1 The fountain of Christ
Assist me to sing,
The blood of our priest,
Our crucified King;
Which perfectly cleanses
From sin and from filth,
And richly dispenses
Salvation and health.

2 This fountain so dear
He'll freely impart;
Unlocked by the spear,
It gushed from his heart,
With blood and with water,
The first to atone,
To cleanse us the latter,
The fountain's but One.

3 This fountain is such
(As thousands can tell)
The moment we touch
It's streams, we are well.
All waters beside them
Are full of the curse;
For all that have tried them
Swell, rot, and grow worse.

4 This fountain, sick soul
Recovers thee quite;
Bathe here, and be whole;
Wash here and be white;
Whatever diseases
Or dangers befall
The fountain of Jesus
Will rid thee of all.

5 This fountain from guilt
Not only makes pure,
And gives, soon as felt,
Infallible cure;
But if guilt removed,
Return and remain,
Its power may be proved
Again, and again.

6 This fountain unsealed
Stands open for all,
That long to be healed
The great and the small;
Here's strength for the weakly,
That hither are led;
Here's health for the sickly;
Here's life for the dead.

7 This fountain though rich,
From charge is quite clear;
The poorer the wretch,
The welcomer here:
Come needy, and guilty,
Come loathsome, and bare:
You can't come too filthy,
Come just as you are.

8 This fountain in vain
Has never been tried,
It takes out all stain
Whenever applied;
The water flows sweetly
With virtue divine,
To cleanse souls completely,
Though leprous as mine.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791

Author: J. Hart

Hart, Joseph, was born in London in 1712. His early life is involved in obscurity. His education was fairly good; and from the testimony of his brother-in-law, and successor in the ministry in Jewin Street, the Rev. John Hughes, "his civil calling was" for some time "that of a teacher of the learned languages." His early life, according to his own Experience which he prefaced to his Hymns, was a curious mixture of loose conduct, serious conviction of sin, and endeavours after amendment of life, and not until Whitsuntide, 1757, did he realize a permanent change, which was brought about mainly through his attending divine service at the Moravian Chapel, in Fetter Lane, London, and hearing a sermon on Rev. iii. 10.
