Come, Thou Fount of every blessing

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.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
  Wand’ring from the face of God;
He, to save my soul from danger,
  Interposed His precious blood.
2
O to grace how great a debtor
  Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let that grace, Lord, like a fetter,
  Bind my wand’ring heart to Thee.
Teach me, Lord, some rapturous measure,
  Meet for me Thy grace to prove,
While I sing the countless treasure
  Of my God’s unchanging love.
3
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it;
  Prone to leave the God I love:
Take my heart, oh, take and seal it
  With Thy Spirit from above.
Rescued thus from sin and danger,
  Purchased by the Savior’s blood,
May I walk on earth a stranger,
  As a son and heir of God.

Was having a rough morning and when I got to church almost left. I have loved this song for the last year and never thought I would hear it at church because it's so old. But there it was playing and I stayed for a great sermon.

I also woke to some of the words to this hymn this morning. Wow, how great is our God.

I awoke early this morning with a few words from the title of this hymn and the melody playing in my spirit. I had only heard this hymn a few times in my life. I have been feeling detached from God. This hymn reminds me to remember the grace and mercy He shows me everyday and to SEEK Him. One of the most beautiful hymns I have heard.

I am often prone to wonder but I rely solely on what Jesus has done for me, I have just renewed my consecration to follow Jesus and trusting his unfailing covenant, I know I am saved. More grace Lord give me to follow You to the end of my pilgrim journey.

I'm prone to wonder but I'm so thankful for a loving Father who wins me back. He leaves the 99 for the 1. Take my heart Lord and SEAL it with Your Spirit.

This beautiful "melodious sonnet" breaks my heart each time I hear it, for I, too, have had a heart prone to wander. I once read an account of the author who, years later, after he had, indeed, wandered far and long from God, was seated on a train near a young lady who was beautifully singing the words of his song. It broke his heart so, that he returned to the God he loved...the prodigal returned to the God who loved him.

I am so blessed by this song! It woos me back into the fold like a siren at sea. It is full of wonder at Gods never ending grace abd the JOY that is ours when we receive it.
