1. When I saw the cleansing fountain
Open wide for all my sin,
I obeyed the spirit’s wooing
When he said “Wilt thou be clean?”
I will praise Him, I will praise Him, praise Him,
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain:..
Give Him glory all ye people,
For His blood has washed away my stain.
2. Though the way seemed straight and narrow,
All I claimed was swept away;
My ambition, plans and wishes,
At my feet in ashes lay.
3. Then God’s fire upon the altar
Of my heart was set aflame;
I shall never cease to praise Him,
Glory! Glory! to His name.
4. Blessed be the name of Jesus,
I’m so glad he took me in;
He has pardoned my transgressions,
He has cleansed my heart from sin.
