Hymn day: “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing”

“Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” by Robert Robison was written in 1758. I love its use of imagery that point to Christ as the giver of living water and the shepherd gathering his sheep back into the fold. Sing or read these words and bask in the ever bountiful grace of God.

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.
Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it,
mount of God’s redeeming love.

2 Here I find my Ebenezer [greatest treasure];
hither by Thy help I’ve 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,
bought me with His precious blood.

3 Oh, 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.
