One of the greatest blessings our Father gave me long ago, was to be raised in the Church singing the timeless old hymns again and again. Last night, I found myself in bed awake and struggling to get back to sleep. Not too unusual for me, but annoying none the less. It seems that in a little while, the words of these great old hymns proceed into my mind, transforming my racing thoughts into songs of prayer and praise. One of my favorites songs to pray to the Lord is, “O Thou Fount of Every Blessing.”
Meditate on these beautiful lyrics as prayer, at home or at work, and hopefully you will discover a whole new dimension to your prayer life.
O thou fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing they 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.
O to grace how great a debtor, daily I’m constrained to be!
Let they goodness like a fetter, Bind my wandering heart to Thee;
Never let me wander from Thee, Never leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart , O take and seal it, Seal it for the courts above.
Have a blessed Lord’s Day!
