M J Harris

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 the Lamb for sinners slain;

Give Him glory, all ye people,

For His blood can wash away each stain.


Though the way seems straight and narrow,

All I claimed was swept away;

My ambitions, plans, and wishes,

At my feet in ashes lay.


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.


Blessed be the name of Jesus,

I’m so glad He took me in;

He’s forgiven my transgressions,

He has cleansed my heart from sin.


Glory, glory to the Father,

Glory, glory to the Son,

Glory, glory to the Spirit,

Glory to the Three in One.
