Man sings a lively and beautiful A Cappella cover of the Christian Hymn ‘Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing’.

Ben Everson writes, “When I was young, I realized God gave me some specific musical abilities. I believe it is my responsibility to use whatever He has given me to make a difference in the lives of others. I try to do this according to three core values: to encourage, to refresh, and to be creative.”
The classic hymn was written by Baptist pastor and hymnist Robert Robinson, in the year 1758 at the age of 22 after he became a Methodist.
The lyrics dwells on the theme of divine grace, based on 1 Samuel 7:12, in which the prophet Samuel raises a stone as a monument, saying, ‘Hitherto hath the Lord helped us’ (KJV).
The song declares of God’s mercy and gentleness. In that, He sought us out and rescued us from the dangers of sin and sinful living through His son Jesus Christ. Implores God, to bind us to Him with His goodness like chains so that our hearts would not go astray.
O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee
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.
Since we are sinful by nature, we fall short of God’s grace regularly. On our own, we don’t have the strength to overcome temptations and live a righteous life. Our only hope and source of strength is in God and the finished work of His Son Jesus Christ on the Cross.
We are reminded of David’s prayer, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Psalms 51:10-12 (NKJV).
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting”. Psalms 139:23-24 (NKJV)
