Sunday Worship Music: Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Brigham Young University Choir and Orchestra

Our dear friend “toh-mas” forwarded this beautiful, beautiful rendition of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing performed by the Brigham Young University Choir and Orchestra. The lyrics are perfect for my favorite Christian Blogger/Teacher, Carl Middleton’s column today. Read that below and be blessed by the video.

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.

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.

Proverbe 4:23

Proverbs 4:23

Carl at GOD’S ANSWER is always Jesus is talking about two words: “so easily.”

These two words, so easily are embedded as a figurative implant right in the middle of Hebrews 12:1 …

“… let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us …”

Carl addresses how sin “so easily beset(s) us,” and how to “lay” it “aside” – “Lay aside every weight…”

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”  (Amplified Bible)

I found the graphic at Angel Cheron with her post on guarding her heart. I’m not familiar with her blog but she has some sage advice:

 We should be guarding our hearts like our life depended on it simply because it does! 1 Samuel 16:7 says, “…The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (NIV)…

The word says “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (NIV). Don’t be concerned about the numbers but be more concerned with having people close to you who have hearts for God who can actually cover you.

Do you know who you are and what you are? If the question puzzles you, or your answer is longer then about about two or three words, let Carl make it so easy for you.  Read So Easily here.  Lyrics credit.
