Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Pin It Now!
Growing up in the South, my hubby and I were both brought up in the church singing hymns. I can remember what it was like to sit through a church service in traditional pews that had real hymnals secured to the to the back of the pew in front of me. I can hear the pastor asking his flock to open their hymnals to page such and such, and I can almost smell the well-worn pages within. :)

(Closing my eyes) Mmmm, nostalgia!

Every so often, my guitar-playing, worship-leading husband leads our pretty non-traditional congregation in a hymn . . .

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing by Robert Robinson - One of my hubby's favorite hymns. Here's his rendition:

Thanks! I enjoyed that. That is one of the hymns on our list for hymn study this year. The lyrics in the 2nd half of the 1st verse were different than the ones I remember. Did you have a source for this lyric version?

I am not sure, Kay. My hubby said that he was singing a traditional version - I guess it's the one he grew up on. I don't have a source for these lyrics if they aren't the same as the ones in the link.

Thanks for sharing that info, Brandi. I love this hymn, but had no idea that the original verses have been changed. I wonder why. =/
