Though Come Thou Fount is not contained in the Church’s Official Hymnbook,
Latter-day Saints have long had a love affair with the protestant hymn. The
superb lyrics, written by Baptist minister Robert Robinson, speak of Christ
mercifully reclaiming the wandering soul.This beautiful rendition, arranged and
conducted by Mack Wilberg, was sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir during
the Church's General Conference March 31, 2007.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.
