"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 this God I love;

Here's my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above."

That is one of my most favorite hymns, and it wasn't included in the new book. I think we need to paste it in the back of our green hymnal, eh, what do you say?

I love this hymn! We sang it in Women's Choir at the U with the 2 audition only chorales and the organ majors at one of our concerts. It was so awesome. It makes me sad it isn't in the hymn book. :(

what a great post - I am always most touched by this verse of the hymn. How easy it seems to wander away. Thanks for the video!

video. right. no vid for me (same old story, slow intraweb), but don't need it anyway.

this is a truly awesome hymn.

this verse always reminds me how stupid i am, that i really do need to be fettered, glued, or quilted, or something to keep my idiot self from wandering off somewhere i shouldn't be. talking spiritually here . . .
