‘There Is a Fountain’

There Is a Fountain, by William Cowper, published in 1772: Mr. Cowper was an exceedingly troubled man, even suicidal, whose life was, ironically, saved when he fell into a temporary bout of madness. He came out of it a man of greater understanding; and he began to write hymns, starting with this one.

Sung by the choir from Fountainview Academy–beautiful!
