Come Thou Fount

 

Come Thou Fount of every blessing

tune my heart to sing Thy grace;

streams of mercy, never ceasing,

call for songs of loudest praise.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,

sung by flaming tongues above.

Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,

Mount of God’s unchanging love.

 

Here I raise my Ebenezer;

hither by Thy help I’m come;

and I hope, by Thy good pleasure,

safely to arrive at home.

Jesus sought me when a stranger,

wandering from the fold of God.

He, to rescue me from danger,

interposed His precious blood.

 

O to grace how great a debtor

daily I’m constrained to be!

Let that grace now like a fetter,

bind my wandering heart to Thee.

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,

prone to leave the God I love;

Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,

seal it for Thy courts above.
