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.

Woke up this morning with the lyrics of the chorus of this beautiful song humming in my mind. I caught a fresh glimpse of the blood from the wounds of The Lord Jesus Christ as He hung on the cross. The blood that was shed for the redemption of humanity- drawn from Emmanuel's very own veins......

I remember this hymn as a child sung in church with "Bigmomma" with no understanding of God, no worries as a child; I hated to hear the song. Now, some years later, it's one of my favorites, I belt it out in troublesome times with joy, thankfulness, and humility. Thank God for the fountain.

Brother William Cowper, a devote man prone to episodes of mental illness and depression wrote this beautiful hymn. Which is one of my favorites of all time. GOD breathed these wonderful words of praise into his soul - GOD isn't looking for superstars. In fact, GOD only uses broken things. It was a broken law that cried for a broken Saviour. It is a broken Saviour that looks for a broken heart. For only could a broken heart receive a crucified Saviour. Blessings, Love, and Light through Christ Jesus the LORD. ✝️❤🕯📖🙏🕊💒
