Come to Calvary's holy mountain
(James Montgomery/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Come to Calvary's holy mountain.

"In that day, there shall be a fountain opened."
(Zechariah 13,1)

1. Come to Calvary's holy mountain,
  sinners ruined by the fall;
here a pure and healing fountain
  flows to you, to me, to all,
    in a full, perpetual tide,
    opened when our Saviour died.

2. Come in poverty and meanness,
  come defiled, without, within;
from infection and uncleanness,
  from the leprosy of sin,
    wash your robes, and make them white:
    ye shall walk with God in light.

3. Come, in sorrow and contrition,
  wounded, impotent and blind;
here the guilty, free remission,
  here the troubled, peace may find;
    health this fountain will restore,
    he that drinks shall thirst no more.

4. He that drinks shall live for ever;
  'tis a soul-renewing flood:
God is faithful, – God will never
  break his covenant in blood;
    signed when our Redeemer died,
    sealed when he was glorified.

James Montgomery, in: Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 160.
