George C. Stebbins (1846–1945)


Come with thy sins to the foun­tain,
Come with thy bur­den of grief;
Bury them deep in its wa­ters,
There thou wilt find a re­lief.


Haste thee away, why wilt thou stay?
Risk not thy soul on a mo­ment’s de­lay;
Jesus is wait­ing to save thee,
Mercy is plead­ing to­day.

Come as thou art to the foun­tain,
Jesus is wait­ing for thee;
What though thy sins are like crim­son,
White as the snow they shall be.


These are the words of the Sav­ior;
They who re­pent and believe,
They who are will­ing to trust Him,
Life at His hand shall re­ceive.


Come and be healed at the foun­tain,
List to the peace speak­ing voice;
Over a sin­ner re­turn­ing
Now let the ang­els re­joice.
