Come Thou Fount Chords

Fountain at Grand Tradition


This song has been recorded by so many artists, including Jars of Clay. It is the background song to the film, Love Come Softly which is based on a Janet Okey novel. Also, it's my husband's favorite hymn and sounds wonderful on the guitar. We both have played it in many weddings. Are you familiar with this very popular tune? It's a song of God's grace that will last forever!

   get into even more trouble, taking on a life of drinking and gambling..."

E                        B                 Asus      B         E
Come thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace;
                         B                Asus      B       E
streams of mercy never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.
     
Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above;
                            B              Asus     B      E 
praise the name Im fixed upon it Name of Gods redeeming love.

E                        B                 Asus      B         E
Hither to thy love has blest me; thou hast brought me to this place;
                           B              Asus    B        E
and I know thy hand will bring me safely home by thy good grace.

Jesus sought me when a stranger wandering from the fold of God;
                        B               Asus       B        E
He, to rescue me from danger, Bought me with his precious blood.

E                         B         Asus       B       E 
O to grace how great a debtor daily Im constrained to be!
                           B             Asus        B        E
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; 
                            B              Asus       B     E  
heres my heart O take it seal it; seal it for thy courts above.
