Restoration 268t

Tune: Southern Harmony, 1835
Lyrics: Robert Robinson, 1758
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Come, Thou Fount of ev'ry blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.

Chorus:

I will rise and go to Jesus,
He'll embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O, there are ten thousand charms.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above;
Praise the mount, O fix me on it,
Mount of Godís unchanging love.

(Chorus)

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.

(Chorus)

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.

(Chorus)
