‘Come Thou Almighty King’

Sometime in the 18th century, Italian composer Felice de Giardini created what has become the standard melody for this ancient hymn, first seen in a hymnal dating from 1580. Come Thou Almighty King–and the sooner, the better!

This is a contemporary arrangement by Mark Miller, backed up by gorgeous photos of God’s handiwork in nature. I won’t even try to resist the combination.
