Come Thou Fount of every blessing Tune my heart to sing Thy praise 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
Here I raise my 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 form the fold of God, He, to rescue me from danger, Interposed His precious blood
O to grace how great a debtor Daily I’m constrained to be! Let that grace now 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, Lord take and seal it, Seal it for Thy courts above.
O come, O come, Emmanuel And ransom captive Israel That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel.
O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here Disperse the gloomy clouds of night And death's dark shadows put to flight. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel.
