Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

I am so blessed. I have a Savior, friends that love me, a roof over my head, an opportunity for a college education, it's a beautiful day, and I'm leaving for the beach in 4 days! I'm so excited to spend a week with my favorite people and learn more about Jesus together.

I'm also excited about leading Crafty Critters tonight, even though I'm sad that my lovely boss and friend Tonia will not be there. I was thinking of making little clouds with the kids tonight out of cotton balls and construction paper. We shall see how it goes!

This song has been in my head for days, it's my favorite hymn.

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;
hither by thy 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 wandering 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.
