Man, today in church we sang the most gruesome hymn. If someone had been in church for the first time and heard us sing that, pretty sure they would have thought it was some strange group of killers.This quote below is from the hymn we sang today and is titled “There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood” byWilliam Cowper.
“There is a fountain filled with blooddrawn from Emmanuel’s veins; and sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains…”1
Seriously, what does a little kid think hearing his parents singing this in church? It does require some explanation. What about a stranger coming into the church for the first time? It’s disgusting and revolting to think about plunging myself into a flood of blood. This song kind of made me feel ill at the thought of these lyrics.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am a Christian…
