CAC GHB 582 : COME THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING


Hymn 582:
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 celestial measure
Sung by ransomed hosts above;
O the vast, the boundless treasure
Of my Lord’s unchanging love!
Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Hither by thine 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, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Take my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for thy courts above!
