An Uncertain Life

William Cowper, born in 1731, was a hymn writer who was also a secular poet.  He led an uneasy, troubled life due to many emotional difficulties.  He suffered panic attacks and bouts of depression.  It was during a time of despair that he wrote one of his most well-known hymn, There is a Fountain Filled with Blood. It is based on Zechariah 13:1:

                                                                                                        “On that day a fountain shall be opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity.”

Listen and enjoy this meditation on the saving blood of Christ.  In an uncertain life, you can be sure that the sacrifice of Jesus is sufficient.
