On this date, April 25, 1800, William Cowper passed away. He was an English Poet who produced some incredible hymns. Two of my favorites of his are “Oh For a Closer Walk with God” and “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.

Lose all their guilty stains, lose all their guilty stains;

And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains.

The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day;

And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away.

Washed all my sins away, washed all my sins away;

And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away.

There is a Fountain Filled with Blood
