restless spirit

Image hosted by

i confess to feeling restless ... maybe it's the hint of fall in the air? maybe the thought of work ending for another season? ... just that little restless tingle in my body ... i want to blog about 6 different topics - all at the same time ... i want to make those phone calls to family and friends, to touch base ... but i don't have anything to offer ... just this nervous anticipation ... you'd think i would outgrow that kind of stuff! *smile* ...

so i think i'll just go grab the cat ... a book ... some tea (green mint tea) ... and try to soothe my restless ole heart ...

Come Thou Fount

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 my Ebenezer;
Here by Thy great help I’ve 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.

O that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy lovely face;
Clothed then in blood washed linen
How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace;
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Take my ransomed soul away;
Send thine angels now to carry
Me to realms of endless day.
