Bind My Heart




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

And teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
I’ll praise the Mount I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help I come
Oh, and I hope by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home

Oh Jesus, sought me when a stranger
Wondering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood

So to grace, how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
And 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, Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

As we are heading into the weekend, what are our hearts thinking upon?  How much fun we are gong to have, how relaxing or busy it will be?  While none of these things are bad, we need to make sure to focus on our Creator, not just His created things.

Bind our hearts, Lord…and hold us close!

    I love that song! I also like the idea of thinking about what we will be setting our hearts upon as we approach the weekend. It is easy to to get distracted and not spend as much time with the Lord on the weekend outside of church so thinking about it ahead of time is helpful. Blessings!
