Inspired By A Hymn

Bind My Heart

Sometimes a line from a song just brands itself into your mind. This line from the famous hymn has always resonated with me and so many others, it seems. We long to be close to God, but we wander away so easily and thoughtlessly.

No wonder Jesus was always talking about sheep.

This print is my version of the bound heart: messy, childish, yet yearning to be held.

Here is the verse:

“Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing”

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.
