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 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!

O! to grace how great a debtor

Daily I'm constrained to be!

Let thy goodness, like a fetter,

Bind my wand'ring 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.
