Text

The voice of free grace cries, 'Escape to the mountain!'
For Adam's lost race Christ hath opened a fountain:
For sin and uncleanness, and every transgression,
His blood flows most freely in streams of salvation,
His blood flows most freely in streams of salvation.

Chorus:
Allelu to the Lamb! He hath bought us our pardon,
We'll praise Him again when we pass over Jordan,
We'll praise Him again when we pass over Jordan.

Ye souls that are wounded! oh, flee to the Saviour!
He calls you in mercy—'tis infinite favor;
Your sins are increasing—escape to the mountain—
His blood can remove them, it flows from the fountain,
His blood can remove them, it flows from the fountain.
[Chorus]

O Jesus! ride onward, triumphantly glorious,
O'er sin, death, and hell, Thou art more than victorious;
Thy name is the theme of the great congregation,
While angels and saints raise the shout of salvation,
While angels and saints raise the shout of salvation.
[Chorus]
