8-year-old Clara Mae sings the beloved hymn ‘Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing,’ ft. Nadia Khristean and cellist Sarah Arnesen.
This classic Christian hymn was written by Robert Robinson, a pastor, and hymnodist in the year 1758 when he was 22.
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,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.
‘Ebenezer,’ which means ‘Stone of Help,’ is a reference to 1 Samuel 7:12: “Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Jeshanah, and named it Ebenezer; for he said, ‘Thus far the Lord has helped us.’”
Here I raise my Ebenezer:
Hither by thy help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wand’ring from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.
Today as we listen to this song by these talented singers and musician, we thank Jesus for the price He paid to free us from sin and hell.
