A song for my heart

We sang the song below in church Sunday morning. Some of the words pierced my heart.  I've emphasized them in the lyrics below.

I'm a Christian, but there are times that I feel so distant from God.  It hurts writing those words, but it is true.  

After we sang this song, our preacher began the sermon.  He spoke about how our nature IS to want to sin, that we will always be struggling with it.

I think, sometimes we forget that as Christians, we are still sinners.  

There have been things in my life that I have held on to that have kept me from being close to God.  I see this now.  Whether it was a plan of satan or just my sinful nature, I've let it continue on.

It's my duty everyday to strive to be blameless.  

I know I won't always make it, but I need to be striving the best that I can.

**If you have a few minutes, listen to the video of this song that I have under the lyrics. I really think it will bless 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 up- on it
Mount of Thy re- deeming love

I was lost in utter darkness 'til You came and rescued me
I was bound by all my sin when Your love came and set me free

Now my soul can sing a new song, now my heart has found a home
Now Your grace is always with me
And I'll never be a- lone

Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our bless- ing
Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our bless- ing

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, Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts a- bove


Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our bless- ing
Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our bless- ing
