Hymns and Spiritual Songs for the Use of Christians
(Philadelphia, 1803) meter: 12 12. 12 12. 13 11.

1. The voice of free grace cries escape to the mountain,
For Adam's lost race, Christ has opened a fountain
For sins and transgressions, and every pollution.
His blood flows most freely in plenteous redemption.
Chorus
Hallelujah to the Lamb who purchased our pardon,
We'll praise him again when we pass over Jordan.

2. This fountain so clear in which all may find pardon,
From Jesus’ side flows plenteous redemption:
Though your sins were increased as high as a mountain,
His blood it flows freely in streams of salvation.
Chorus

3. O! Jesus, ride on, thy kingdom is glorious,
O’er sin, death, and hell, thou wilt make us victorious;
Thy name shall be praised in the great congregation,
And saints shall rejoice in ascribing salvation.
Chorus

4. When on Zion we stand, having gained the blest shore,
With our harps in our hands, we'll praise him evermore:
We'll range the blest fields on the bank of the river,
And sing Hallelujah for ever and ever.
Chorus

 

From Jeremiah Ingalls' Christian Harmony, 1805
meter: 11 11. 12 12. 13 11.

1. The voice of free grace cries 'scape to the mountains,
In Adam's lost race, Christ* opened a fountain
For sins and transgressions, and every pollution.
The blood it flows freely in streams of salvation.
Chorus
Hallelujah to the Lamb, who purchased our pardon,
We'll praise him again when we pass over Jordan.

2. This fountain is wide where all may find pardon,
From Jesus’ side flows a plenteous redemption:
Though sins they are raised as high as a mountain,
The blood it will cleanse you, that flows from this fountain.
Chorus

3. O! Jesus, ride on, thy kingdom is glorious,
O’er death, hell and sin, will make us victorious;
Thy name shall be praised in the great congregation,
And saints shall rejoice in ascribing salvation.
Chorus

4. On Zion we stand, we’ve gained the blest shore!
With harps in our hands, we praise evermore :
We view the blest fields on the bank of the river,
And sing Hallelujahs for ever and ever.
Chorus

(Nashville, 1892) meter: 12 12. 12 12. 14 12.

1. 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.”
Chorus
Hallelujah to the Lamb, who has purchased our pardon
We will praise him again when we pass over Jordan.

2. Now glory to God in the highest is given :
Now glory to God is re-echoed in heaven;
Around the whole earth let us tell the glad story,
And sing of his love, his salvation and glory.
Chorus

3. O Jesus, ride on-thy kingdom is glorious;
O'er sin, death, and hell, thou will make us victorious:
Thy name shall be praised in the great congregation,
And saints shall ascribe unto thee their salvation.
Chorus

4. When on Zion we stand, having gained the blest shore,
With our harps in our hands, we will praise evermore:
We'll range the blest fields on the banks of the river,
And sing of redemption forever and ever.
