Come Jesus

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. Hither by Thy help I come.
And I hope by Thy good pleasure safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger wandering 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, Lord, take and seal it. Seal it for Thy courts above.

This song has been on my heart the last few days. It has been all I have wanted to post...yet somehow, I felt song lyrics would not be good enough. Oh, friends. The title of my site is Melody For Thy Name. What is a better melody than a life living out these lyrics. I would love for my life to be as beautiful as this song! The last verse is one of those guessed it..makes me cry. Every time it is sung in church, or on the radio...friends, I get so choked up the sound coming out of me as I try to sing is not...melodic. I'm pretty sure God mutes me in those moments so the sound doesn't hurt His ears. Still. O, to GRACE, how GREAT a debtor DAILY I'm CONSTRAINED to be. If I did not pray for God to bind my wandering heart to Himself...beg Him to do so...I do not know where my heart would be. I am prone to wander. O Lord, I feel it. I'm prone to leave the God I love! I have to be aware of my deep need for Him. I must ask God to be gracious enough to teach me to love Him more.
Lord. Here is my heart. Take and seal it. Seal it for Your courts.
Have a wonderful day! Go and enjoy the beautiful sunlight God has given us!
