From the album The Place You Have For Me
I love hymns. There is something of deep, eternal value in these words that needs to be heard! I am so encouraged by the words and music of those believers who have gone before me. In this classic hymn, I hear the same struggles and doubts that I sometimes face, and I am encouraged that I am not alone! Again, I love how Don gave this old song and new twist!

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 mine Ebenezer;
here by thy great help I'm 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 wand'ring 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
