Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
While the hope of endless glory
Fills my heart with joy and love,
Teach me ever to adore Thee;
May I still Thy goodness prove.
Here I 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,
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 Thy grace now 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.

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
COME, THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING
Jesus is the Fountain of Life. He gives new life to those who are born again in Him. (John 3:1-17) God's great mercy extended to our sinful souls through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross is cause for great praise, as this song proclaims.
