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.Refrain: I am bound for the kingdom, Will you go to glory with me? Hallelujah, praise the Lord!2. Here I raise mine Ebenezer— Hither by Thy help I’m come; And I hope by Thy good pleasure, Safely to arrive at home.3. 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.
