Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
written by Robert Robinson
"Come thou fount of every blessing.
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
Name of God's redeeming love."
This hymn is the first I've featured that was originally written in English. Robert Robinson wrote this hymn in 1757 when he was just 22 years of age. I love that this hymn is an excellent example of God using the words of a young man.
I will give thanks to the Lord
because of His righteousness;
I will sing the praises of the
name of the Lord Most High
