There Is A Fountain – Dale Ann Bradley, Don Gulley, Steve Gulley and Vic Graves (a capella) Traditional

“As soon as we reached the water’s edge, we began to sing that grand old hymn ‘There is a Fountain Filled with Blood’ and at once the enemy began to leave their works and hastened to the riverside.” -Reverend Willie Ragland, Chaplain of the 13th Virginia Brigade.

In December 1863, the Union Army of the Potomac and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia came together over the Rapidan River, not in violence, but in song. Though just days before they were locked in bloody conflict, on this cold morning God was praised as they sang together the old hymn, “There is a Fountain Filled with Blood”, while a Confederate soldier (Goodwin from Company A) was baptized by the Confederate Chaplain. Despite being enemies, the tired and homesick men laid down their weapons to celebrate Jesus, and embrace the truth that God didn’t choose sides.
