Come Thou Fount

Robert Robinson

Verse 1
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

Verse 2
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love
Here I’ll 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
Wand’ring from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood

Verse 3
Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter
Bind my feeble 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

Verse 4
Hallelujah! I have found it
The full cleansing I had craved
And to all the world I’ll sound it
They too may be wholly saved
I am sealed by Thy sweet Spirit
Prone no longer now to roam
And Thy voice, I’ll humbly hear it
For Thy presence is my home
