Sunday Lyrics – Come Thou Fount

I love Jadon Lavik’s contemporary version of this classic. 

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.
I’ll 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
Wondering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood

O to grace how great a debtor
daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness 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, O take and seal it,
seal it for Thy courts above

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

My very favorite part is the last verse where the author describes how his he finds his heart wandering away from the God who provides every blessing, and asks God to take his heart and make it His.  This is a prayer I find myself praying multiple times a day.

You can see it Jadon Lavik perform it in a radio station here on You Tube.

  1. Wow! That is an awesome version.. I also love those two lines and often pray them because they so articulately describe me.
