Come, thou Fount of ev'ry Blessing,

Poet: Robert Robinson, 1758
Meter: 8s,7s (8,7,8,7)
Location in The Sacred Harp
Stanza Denson Cooper
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:
Teach me some melodious Sonnet,
Sung by flaming Tongues above;
Praise the Mount, I'm fixt upon it,
Mount of God's unchanging Love.

Lord Revive Us (Holy Manna) 59t, Stanzas 1 & 2
Here I raise my Eben-ezer,
Hither by thy Grace I'm come;
So I hope by thy good Pleasure,
Shortly to arrive at Home:
Jesus sought me, when a Stranger,
Wond'ring from the Fold of God;
He to rescue me from Danger,
Interpos'd with precious Blood.

O! to Grace how great a Debtor,
Daily I'm constrain'd to be;
Let that Grace now like a Fetter,
Bind my wand'ring Heart to Thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave that God I love;
Take my Heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it from thy Courts above.

Lord Revive Us (Holy Manna) 59t, (Lines 1, 2, 3, & 4), Stanza 3
O that Day when freed from Sinning,
I shall see thy lovely Face;
Clothed then in blood-wash'd Linnen,
How I'll sing thy sov'reign Grace:
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Take my ransom'd Soul away;
Send thine Angels now to carry
Me to Realms of endless Day.
