Many of us love Robert Robertson’s hymn “Come Thou Fount” because of these lines:
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.
We understand this. We all keenly feel our proneness to wander from the God we love. And we all want this terrible proneness to decrease.
So if we sing this hymn seriously and in faith — really wanting God to keep us from wandering so we persevere and make it to his heavenly courts — what are we asking God for? What does losing our proneness to wander look like?
