Title: Come Thou Fount

Date: 31/07/2009 (Other)

Speaker: Congregation

Bible Reference: Summer Conference Hymn


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 measure,
Sung by flaming tongues above;
O the vast, the boundless treasure
Of my Lord?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, Lord, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I fell it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Take my heart, o take and seal it,
Seal it from Thy courts above!

Robert Robinson, 1735-90
