Tune: CLEANSING WAVE by Phoebe P. Knapp, 1873
Key signature: E flat major (3 flats)
1. O now I see the cleansing wave! The fountain deep and wide; Jesus, my Lord, mighty to save, Points to His wounded side.
Refrain: 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.
2. I see the new creation rise, I hear the speaking blood; It speaks, polluted nature dies, Sinks ‘neath the cleansing flood.
3. 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.
4. Amazing grace! ‘tis Heav’n below To feel the blood applied, And Jesus, only Jesus know, My Jesus crucified.
