Come thou Fount

Create in me
Create in me a clean heart O God
That I might serve you
Create in me a clean heart O God
That I might be renewed
So fill me and heal me
Then bring me back to you
Create in me a clean heart O God

That I might serve you

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 God’s unchanging love.


Here I 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, wandring 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

wandring 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.

Go in peace
As we go we go in peace
By spreading love the fights will cease
We will act on what we've learner (x2)
What can we do to heal the broken
What can we do to feed the hungry
Follow the path that Jesus showed us
The prince of peace, prince of peace

We have (are) all the tools we need
Through us God will plant the seed
We will love our enemies (x2)
