Verse 1
Come O Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing your grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise:
Songs of God’s abundant treasure,
Sung by angel tongues above,
Songs that tell the boundless measure,
Of my Lord’s unchanging love!

Verse 2
I remember God’s great mercy:
By his help I’ve safely come;
And I know he will not fail me,
But will surely bring me home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering far away from God,
And, to rescue me from danger,
Shed for me his precious blood.

Verse 3
Through God’s grace I am his debtor –
Daily I this thought renew!
Let that grace, Lord, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to you.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love!
Take my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for your courts above!

Verse 4
On that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see your lovely face;
Full arrayed in blood-washed linen,
How I’ll sing your sovereign grace!
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Bring your promises to pass,
For I know your pow’r will keep me
Till I’m home with you at last.

  Sample Introduction

Using imagery of Christ as the giver of living water and the shepherd gathering his sheep back into the fold, this hymn reminds us of the ever bountiful grace of God. We are all “prone to wander,” and are quick to seek redemption through our own power. But God continues to bring us back from our wandering, by the power of his precious blood.
