A Hymn of Inspiration

Happy Friday everyone!
I wanted to post today about a hymn that we use to sing in our church back in Florida that has been a great inspiration to my husband and I and it's one of my favorite hymns to sing. Hopefully the church we attend now, which is not in Florida, will sing a hymn someday soon on Sunday. :)
1. Come, thou Fount of every 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 fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.

2. Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I'm come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God;
he, to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood.

3. O to grace how great a debtor
daily I'm constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
bind my wandering heart to thee.
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.
And if you have never heard of this song before or are unfamiliar with the tune, here is a great link that plays the tune for you. :)
Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by!
