Worship Wednesday: "Come Thou Fount" by Jadon Lavik

"Come Thou Fount" is one of my all-time favorite hymns. I love to sing it a capella, without music. The words just...capture me.

And I love Jadon Lavik's version of it. It's peppy and when sung along with the guitar, it's magic. Take a listen and let your soul seep in the words.



Your Turn: What's your favorite hymn? Is there a fun "modern" version of that hymn that you love?

  1. I really love Blessed Assurance and To God Be the Glory. And "Wonderful Grace of Jesus." There's a really high note in that song and when we were kids, we loved it when the pastor tried to reach that note. It was hilarious. The church I grew up in has mainly moved to contemporary P&W, but I have to say I'm still a fan of old hymns...not that I don't like current P&W songs. I just love the depth of the lyrics in so many hymns.

    1. Ooo, love Blessed Assurance!! Not sure if I know Wonderful Grace of Jesus, though.

      My church does a blend of hymns and contemporary, which I love -- because I love both!

  2. As I was watching this video my boys came up and wanted to see it. They grinned as they watched it and Asher missed the screen. I think they liked it. :)

    I love Amazing Grace. It's my all-time favorite song ever and I love what Chris Tomlin has done with it. I also love this hymn. So beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I'm right there with you, Lindsay. This is one of my favorite hymns turned contemporary. I really love it when new artists put a spin on a wonderful, old hymn. It gives those words and truths exposure to a whole new generation. Thanks for the worship time this morning, Friend!

  4. LOVE this hymn. The working title for one of my novels is Streams of Mercy. I'm a fan of the old-time hymns. I'll Fly Away and Heavenly Sunlight are two I often sing when no one's listening. (Trust me, it's better that way!)

    1. Ooo, love "I'll Fly Away." Didn't Jars of Clay do a version of that? I don't know if I know "Heavenly Sunlight," though. So many good hymns out there!
