(I’m writing this on Thursday, and if I don’t make a hash of it again, you’re reading it on Monday and we’re on our way to the doctor’s office again… now that we know where it is.)
Robert Robertson wrote this gorgeous hymn in 1758, when he was only 23 years old–hard to imagine! Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing–and I wish I knew who this is, singing it, so I could give due credit. Very nice, whoever you are.
“Ohio Chess Fan” posted this hymn on my “Playground Player” page at http://www.chessgames.com yesterday–Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, sung by Eclipse 6. He also has a pretty good Bible study to go with it, if you want to visit Page 623 of my forum.
Robert Robinson was only 22 years old when he wrote this hymn, published in 1757–Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, here performed by Fernando Ortega. Sing along if you like: here are the lyrics.
I think this hymn will stay with you for a while today: Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, sung by The Lutheran Warbler. I’d tell you more about her if I could, but all I know is that she posts her hymns on youtube and a lot of people like them. And she has an album or two of hymns for sale on amazon.com… without revealing her identity. Maybe she’s a secret agent, like Phebe for the church at Cenchrea–who delivered Paul’s epistle to the Romans to Rome.
I have to run to the dentist, and just have time to post this hymn, Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing: requested by “thewhiterabbit,” and I’m happy to be able to do it.
