#227: The Cleansing Wave

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


O now I see the cleansing wave,

The fountain deep and wide:

Jesus, my Lord, mighty to save,

Points to His wounded side.


The cleansing stream I see, I see!

I plunge, and O it cleanseth me!

O praise the Lord, it cleanseth me!

It cleanseth me – yes, cleanseth me.


I rise to walk in heav’n’s own light

Above the world and sin,

With heart made pure and garments white,

And Christ enthroned within.



Amazing grace! ‘tis heav’n below

To feel the blood applied,

And Jesus, only Jesus know –

My Jesus crucified.
