Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of endless praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above;
praise His name!
I’m fixed upon it-
name of God’s redeeming love.
Hitherto Thy love has blest me;
Thou hast brought me to this place;
And I know Thy hand will bring me
safely home by Thy good grace.
Jesus sought me when a stranger
wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger
bought me with His precious blood.
O to grace how great a debtor
daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, 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.
