VERSE 1

           D              A 
Come, Thou Fount of ev'ry blessing,

D       G     D  A7       D 
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;

                       A 
Streams of mercy never ceasing,

D        G     D  A7      D 
Call for songs of loudest praise.

              F#m G       D 
Teach me some me--lodious sonnet,

            F#m G        D 
Sung by flaming tongues above;

                              A 
Praise the mount, I'm fixed upon it,

D        G   D A7      D 
Mount of Thy redeeming love.

VERSE 2

       D            A 
Here I raise mine Ebenezer;

D      G  D   A7       D 
Hither by Thy help I'm come;

                        A 
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,

D      G  D A7      D 
Safely to arrive at home.

             F#m G      D 
Jesus sought me  when a stranger,

               F#m G       D 
Wand'ring from the fold of God;

                      A 
He, to rescue me from danger,

D    G     D   A7       D 
Interposed His precious blood.

VERSE 3

     D                 A 
O to grace how great a debtor

D     G   D  A7          D 
Daily I'm constrained to be!

                         A 
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,

D       G  D      A7       D 
Bind my wand'ring heart to Thee.

            F#m  G       D 
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,

               F#m G     D 
Prone to leave the God I love;

                            A 
Here's my heart, O take and seal it;

D       G   D   A7      D 
Seal it for Thy courts above
