Program Notes:

Included in the sermon is the singing of the old hymn, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”.  The words are printed below.

1.  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 ever to adore Thee, May I still Thy goodness prove,
While the hope of endless glory Fills my heart with joy and love.

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, Wandering from the fold of God;
He to rescue me from danger Interposed His precious blood.

3.  O, to grace how great a debtor Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, Bind me closer still 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.
