    Verse 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 measure
    Sung by flaming tongues above.
    O the vast, the boundless treasure
    Of my Lord's unchanging love!

    Verse 2
    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,
    Wand'ring from the fold of God;
    He, to rescue me from danger,
    Interposed His precious blood.

    Verse 3
    Oh, to grace how great a debtor
    Daily I'm constrained to be!
    Let thy grace, Lord, like a fetter,
    Bind my wandering heart to Thee;
    Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
    Prone to leave the God I love.
    Take my heart, O take and seal it,
    Seal it from Thy courts above!
