Count Our Blessings

This song has been a favorite of mine for many years. We do well to remember all our blessings each and everyday.

Life is so fleeting.

It is a Christian hymn written by the 18th century pastor and hymnist Robert Robinson.

Robert Robinson penned the words at age 22 in the year 1757.

  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 some melodious sonnet,
    Sung by flaming tongues above;
    Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
    Mount of Thy redeeming love.
  2. Here I’ll raise my 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,
    Wand’ring from the fold of God;
    He, to rescue me from danger,
    Interposed His precious blood.
  3. Oh, to grace how great a debtor
    Daily I’m constrained to be!
    Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
    Bind my feeble heart to Thee.
    “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,”
    Long I cried to be made pure;
    “Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
    Work in me Thy double cure.”
  4. Hallelujah! I have found it,
    The full cleansing I had craved,
    And to all the world I’ll sound it:
    They too may be wholly saved.
    I am sealed by Thy sweet Spirit,
    Prone no longer now to roam;
    And Thy voice, I’ll humbly hear it,
    For Thy presence is my home.
