The story makes the song better!

In tomorrow morning’s Lord’s Day Gathering at Calvary, our worship in music will focus on Christ our Redeemer. One hymn we will sing is Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, by Robert Robinson (1735-1790).  Do you want to know a little about this man and why he wrote “Praise the mount! [speaking of Mount Calvary, where our Savior died in our place] I’m fixed upon it, Mount of Thy redeeming love?”

Read this synopsis of his life here.
