HYMN 622: THERE IS A FOUNTAIN FILLED WITH BLOOD – ON A GOOD FRIDAY

0

Last week friday, I was on my way home when the Spirit brought back the sweet tunes of this hymnal to my reminder. As a child that grew up in an orthodox Church, hymns have always been a great part of me but as a kid, I dwell on the melody than the lyrics
So last week when the melody hit me, I quickly dusted up an old hymn book and read the lyrics while singing the song during a prayer session, I discovered I was stuck on the verse 4.

“E’er since by faith I saw the stream…”

MY DESIRE

It got me thinking that at what point did my life took this turn for ‘good’? I remember that I have been so overpowered by sin and I always tell God I wish He could take the two most familiar sins in my life away so I can have a closer relationship with Him. I desired it!

THE BLOOD

I also remember that there was a time the only thing I was doing while praying was pleading the blood of Jesus. I knew there was a power in the blood, I needed the power, I didn’t know how to get it but I just continued pleading for a very long period of time.

THE GRACE

Now I’m not saying these are rules for obtaining grace (not saying it isn’t either) but this much I remember on the eve before my turn around – the rest is blurry. My life has changed tremendously and I have overcome sin flawlessly by the help of God, not because of my effort but because of a gift I obtained; the gift of grace that Jesus paid for, by His death on the cross and has freely given to all who desire it.

This friday, as we celebrate the death of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection, please pick up your hymn book with me and let’s glory in what Christ has done for us. Oh you don’t have a hymn book? Check for the lyrics below.

HYMN 622: THERE IS A FOUNTAIN FILLED WITH BLOOD

– William Cowper, 1731-1800

Check Here for the Melody

1.There is a fountain filled with blood
drawn from Emmanuel’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 church of God
be saved, to sin no more.
Be saved, to sin no more,
be saved, to sin no more;
till all the ransomed church 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.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.


Thank you for sharing this moment with us, Wishing you a “Good Friday!”
