By Greg Laurie
“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.”
The church today still sings the powerful, beautiful songs of the British poet and hymn writer William Cowper. Although he penned the words of hymns like “There Is a Fountain” and “God Moves in a Mysterious Way,” he was a depressed man.
Cowper’s mother died when he was very young. Afterward, his father sent him to boarding school and really had nothing to do with him. Cowper struggled so mightily that he even made a number of suicide attempts.
His father then committed him to an asylum. There a doctor shared the gospel with him, and William Cowper came to Christ.
