University Students Sing A Cappella Cover Of ‘Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing’

The Belmont University vocal group The Beltones sing a beautiful a cappella cover of the Christian hymn ‘Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.’

Today they present a beautiful music video of the Christian hymn ‘Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing’ written by the 18th-century pastor and hymnodist Robert Robinson who wrote the song in 1758 at the age of 22.

come-thou-fount-of-every-blessing-the-beltones

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

The words of the song are inspired by divine grace, are 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).

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Here there by Thy great help I’ve come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God

For all of us, this has been a tough year, but we all have stories of God’s faithfulness. Our very own Ebenezer stones are there that we can look at to remember his kindness. God has been so faithful to us until now, and he will help us in the future.

One of my favourite hymns ever. God bless these students blessing us with this supplicatory hymn.

Verse of the Day

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
