quick prayer

I have a song in my head this morning. I don't know why I woke up humming it so I looked up the words. It's by Robert Robinson, written in 1758. Here are a couple of verses...

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.
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.

My prayer today is that God's grace and mercy would never cease and that it would overflow on my family. That we would be bound to Him and not tempted to wander as we so often are.
