One of My Favorites

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing - Robert Robinson 1758

"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.

Sorrowing I shall be in spirit, Till released from flesh and sin,Yet from what I do inherit, here Thy praises I’ll begin; Here I raise mine 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. How His kindness yet pursues me. Mortal tongue can never tell, clothed in flesh, till death shall loose me I cannot proclaim it well.

O 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.

O that day when freed from sinning, I shall see Thy lovely face; Clothed then in blood washed linen how I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace; Come, my Lord, no longer tarry, take my ransomed soul away; Send thine angels now to carry me to realms of endless day."

Last week was so very full and lovely. I hope to have more time to write this coming week. I pray that you are all having a blessed and restful Sunday. In God's Immense Love, Tami

  1. This is one of my most favorite hymns. I could hear it playing in my head as I read the lyrics. And beautiful photo, too!
