Over the past couple of years we have become rabid fans of Broken Bow Music, who has given us some wonderful new Christmas music that features a signature blend while sharing powerful messages. They have just released their rendition of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.
This sacred song has become an anthem of Thanksgiving. We have told its history before and we encourage you to read it again. It is a song of praise but one that was written in 18th century, so some of its lyrics and phrasing could use some explanation:
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
This is a clear reference to God. Jesus is the Living Water through which all blessings flow. As water is essential to sustain physical life, the Savior and his teachings (living water) are essential for eternal life.
Robert Robinson, the 22-year old cleric who wrote this song, was looking for a sermon. This was here he started.
