There is a fountain filled with blood

1
There is a fountain filled with blood
  Drawn from Immanuel’s veins;
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
  Lose all their guilty stains:
  Lose all their guilty stains,
  Lose all their guilty stains;
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
  Lose all their guilty stains.
2
The dying thief rejoiced to see
  That fountain in his day;
And there may I, though vile as he,
  Wash all my sins away:
  Wash all my sins away,
  Wash all my sins away;
And there may I, though vile as he,
  Wash all my sins away.
3
Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
  Shall never lose its power,
Till all the ransomed ones of God
  Be saved, to sin no more:
  Be saved, to sin no more,
  Be saved, to sin no more;
Till all the ransomed ones of God,
  Be saved to sin no more.
4
E’er since by faith I saw the stream
  Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
  And shall be till I die:
  And shall be till I die,
  And shall be till I die;
Redeeming love has been my theme,
  And shall be till I die.
5
When this poor lisping, stammering tongue
  Lies silent in the grave,
Then in a nobler, sweeter song,
  I’ll sing Thy power to save:
  I’ll sing Thy power to save,
  I’ll sing Thy power to save;
Then in a nobler, sweeter song,
  I’ll sing Thy power to save.

My sister died this week in 2002. I was going to sing another song but soundtrack didn't work. But I had There is a fountain practiced for Good Friday and ended up singing it for her funeral accapella. It was the perfect song and I believe God planned it that way. Now 18 years later I will be singing it for communion. I hope I don't get chocked up on the last verse Like I did for my sister's funeral! The message of this song is powerful. I count it a priveledge to be able to sing it again in the same way! Darlene I hope you can here me singing it. I miss you so much. But , I know I will see you again!

This hymn came welling up in my spirit as I stood over a loved one who lay dying after having lived a sinful lifestyle. The Holy Spirit gave me an assurance that this soul had made peace with God and was in a good place to go on into eternity. the hymn continued on as this loved one breathed his last and continues to give me comfort whenever I sing it.
