Come, thou fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing thy grace.
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.

Chorus: I will arise and go to Jesus;
He will embrace me in his arms.
In the arms of my dear savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount, oh, fix me on it,
Mount of thy redeeming love.
