There is a Fountain Filled with BLOOD

There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel’s veins;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains.

Aw, yeah baby. This is what it’s all about. Just picture that.

Take a dip.

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.

Then in a nobler, sweeter song, I’ll sing Thy power to save,
When this poor lisping, stammering tongue lies silent in the grave.
Lies silent in the grave, lies silent in the grave;
When this poor lisping, stammering tongue lies silent in the grave.

Sounds great. Sources say:

“This is one of the first hymns Cow­per wrote af­ter his first at­tack of tem­po­ra­ry mad­ness.”

“‘There is a Fountain Filled with Blood,’ is a well-known hymn written by William Cowper. It was one of the first hymns he wrote after his first major bout of depression.”

I’d never have guessed.

There’s a FOUNTAIN… and it’s FILLED with BLOOD!

It’s just business as usual.
