lyrics

Come thou fount of every blessing.
Tune my heart to sing thy grace.
Streams of mercy never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest joy.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by loyal friends above.
Raise my cup I’m fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.

Sorrowing I’ll be in spirit
‘til released from flesh and time.
Yet from what I do inherit,
here thy winter may subside.

Here I raise my Ebenezer.
Here by thy great help I’ve come.
And I hope by thy good pleasure
safely to arrive at home

When they sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of home.
They to rescue me from danger,
yhey interposed their precious warmth.

How their kindness yet pursues me
mortal tongue can never tell.
Clothed in flesh ‘til death shall loose me,
I cannot proclaim it well.

On that day when freed from breathing,
I shall see thy lovely face.
Clothed then in blood-washed linen,
how I’ll sing thy sovereign grace.

Come, my friend, no longer tarry.
Take my ransomed soul away.
Send my brother now to carry
me to realms of endless day.
