Week 7: Come Thou Fount

If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs, you’ve probably realized by now that our first album, ‘Trusting You’, was primarily made up of classic hymns. Many of these songs have been sung in churches for generations, sung in absolutely beautiful 4-part harmony.

The words to this week’s song, Come Thou Fount, were written in 1757 by a young pastor named Robert Robinson. Though written over two and a half centuries ago, we believe, the words still connect with us today. This song testifies to God’s amazing grace and being the giver of every blessing. As humans, we have a heart that is “prone to wander” and “leave the God I love”. “Let that grace now like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee” is a powerful plea. To fight this temptation to wander, we need God to keep us in-tune with His heart.

Come Thou Fount is definitely a favorite of our listeners and one we love to sing. Check out the video at the end of this blog to watch a clip from this past summer.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. “ Ephesians 1:3

Come Thou Fount

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.
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.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it.
Seal it for Thy courts above

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
