beneath African skies.

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 unchanging love. 

here i raise my ebenezer
hither by thy help i 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.

Oh, to grace how great a debtor
daily i’m constrained to be.
let that grace now, 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, oh, take and seal it
seal it for thy courts above.

You ask Him to teach you a song, He will.
sung by flaming tongues above, 

He has never failed to show me who He is when i have asked.
