The Cleansing Wave

Hymn lyrics by Phoebe W. Palmer,
Music by Phoebe P. Knapp

Verse 1

Oh, 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 oh, it cleanseth me!
Oh, praise the Lord! It cleanseth me!
It cleanseth me—yes, cleanseth me.

Verse 2

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.


Verse 3

I see the new creation rise;
I hear the speaking blood.
It speaks! Polluted nature dies!
Sinks ’neath the cleansing flood.


Verse 4

Amazing grace! ’tis Heav’n below
To feel the blood applied,
And Jesus, only Jesus know,
My Jesus crucified.
