Moments of Grace: Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Sunday Morning Meditation
"And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem
the Spirit of GRACE and supplication;
they they will look on Me, Whom they pierced.
Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son,
and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn."
"In that day a FOUNTAIN shall be opened for the house of David
and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
for sin and for uncleanness."
Zechariah 12:10, 13:1

"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 sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount, I'm fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.
Thou has brought me to this place;
And I know Thy hand will bring me
Safely home by Thy good GRACE.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger
Bought me with His precious blood.
Oh, to GRACE how great a debtor,
Daily I'm constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, as 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."
"Here's my heart,
O take and seal it~
Seal it for Thy Courts above."
