Zionís Ship 457

Tune: J. D. Arnold and C. F. White, 1869
Alto: Miss Minnie Floyd, 1902
Lyrics: Robert Robinson, 1758
Meter: 8s,7s (8,7,8,7)
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:

Zion's ship is on the ocean,
Bound for Canaan's happy shore.

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)
