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.


Bless the Lord, O my soul!
Praise the Lord, O my brother!
Shout and sing, O my sister!
Give him glory, O my father!
And rejoice, O my mother!
And we'll travel on together,
And we'll join heart and hands for Canaan.

Come, dear Lord, no long tarry;
Take my raptur'd soul away;
Send Thine angels down to carry
Me to realms of endless day.
