Hymn of the Week for 6/13/21-Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing 

1      Come, thou Fount of ev'ry blessing, 

        tune my heart to sing thy grace; 

        streams of mercy, never ceasing, 

        call for songs of loudest praise. 

        While the hope of endless glory 

        fills my heart with joy and love, 

        teach me ever to adore thee; 

        may I still thy goodness prove. 

2      Here I raise my Ebenezer: 

        "Hither by thy help I've come"; 

        and I hope, by thy good pleasure, 

        safely to arrive at home. 

        Jesus sought me when a stranger, 

        wand'ring from the fold of God; 

        he, to rescue me from danger, 

        interposed his precious blood. 

3      Oh, to grace how great a debtor 

        daily I'm constrained to be; 

        let that grace now 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, oh, take and seal it; 

        seal it for thy courts above. 

Text: Robert Robinson, 1735-1790, alt.

Shepherd Me, O God 

Refrain 

Shepherd me, O God, beyond my wants, 

beyond my fears, from death into life. 

1      God is my shepherd, so nothing shall I want, 

I rest in the meadows of faithfulness and love, 

I walk by the quiet waters of peace.  Refrain 

2      Gently you raise me and heal my weary soul, 

        you lead me by pathways of righteousness and truth, 

        my spirit shall sing the music of your name.  Refrain 

3      Though I should wander the valley of death, 

I fear no evil, for you are at my side, 

your rod and your staff, my comfort and my hope.  Refrain 

4      You have set me a banquet of love 

in the face of hatred, 

crowning me with love beyond my pow'r to hold.  Refrain 

5      Surely your kindness and mercy follow me 

all the days of my life; 

I will dwell in the house of my God forevermore.  Refrain
