Come Thou Fount


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 His Name I'm fixed upon it, Name of God's redeeming love.

2. Hither to thy love has blessed me, Thou has brought me to this place
And I know thy hand will bring me, Safely home by thy good grace
Jesus sought me when a stranger, Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger, Bought me with 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.

Oh Lord, once again I beg You to forgive me for my transgressions of thy worship, which you alone are wise to prescribe:

Lev 10:1-5 ESV - Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it and laid incense on it and offered unauthorized fire before the LORD, which he had not commanded them. (2) And fire came out from before the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD. (3) Then Moses said to Aaron, "This is what the LORD has said, 'Among those who are near me I will be sanctified, and before all the people I will be glorified.'" And Aaron held his peace. (4) And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said to them, "Come near; carry your brothers away from the front of the sanctuary and out of the camp." (5) So they came near and carried them in their coats out of the camp, as Moses had said.

What a great, great sinner I am.  Only by your grace have I been pardoned and given eternal life....

Wretched man that I am!  Who will deliver me from this body of death?  Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!  So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. (Rom 7:24-25 ESV)
