Tonight I left work late grumpy and ready to end a terrible, no good, very bad day. In the first few minutes of my car ride, I started paying attention to the music playing in the background. I had in Matt Papa’s CD (a worship leader in the area), and was suddenly I was humbled by the song. My bad mood evaporated as I heard the gospel in the song and I found myself crying to the words. I listened to the song on repeat until I got home and suddenly my day didn’t seem so bad.
O well of joy is mine to drink for my Lord hath conquered death.
O FOUNT OF LOVE
O fount of love divine that flows from my saviors bleeding side
Where sinners trade their filthy rags for His righteousness applied
Mercy cleansing every stain now rushing o’er us like a flood
There the wretch and vilest ones stand adopted through His blood
O mount of grace to thee we cling from the law hath set us free
Once and for all on Calvary’s hill love and justice shall agree
Praise the Lord! the price is paid the curse defeated by the Lamb
We who once were slaves by birth, sons and daughters now we stand
O well of joy is mine to drink for my Lord hath conquered death
Victorious forevermore, the ancient foe is laid to rest
Hallelujah, Christ is King! alive and reigning on the throne
Our tongues employed with hymns of praise, Glory be to God alone!
