Sufjan Stevens – Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing/ Lyrics | MetroLyrics

COME THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING LYRICS

“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

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

Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the throne of God
He to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood

Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily Im 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, oh, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

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 unchanging love”

1st Peter 4:  7 -8 -9 -10 …”The end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.  And above all things, have fervent love for one another, for love will cover a multitude of sins.  Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.  As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”

Ephesians4: 32   “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

DEAR FATHER,

We pray that you will lead us in the way everlasting ~ in Your way, where there is light and love and joy.  We pray that the words we speak and the actions we take may model Jesus when He was on the earth, ministering to the multitudes.  Please speak through us and minister through us as we are Your vessels on earth until You return to unite us with Yourself and the saints and angels in heaven.  Let us care for and show compassion upon those who need a touch from You and bless us as we serve You.  Reach Your mighty hand out to the lost and save them so that they may spend eternity with You.  May Your Holy Spirit speak love and quiet to them in a world  in chaos, in tumultuous times.  Grant mercy and peace, Dear Father, in times of turmoil ~ and heal their souls.  In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Psalm 19:14   May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight oh, Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
