Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing is a Christian hymn written by the 18th century pastor and hymnist Robert Robinson. Robert Robinson penned the words at age 22 in the year 1757.

In the USA, the hymn is usually set to an American folk tune known as Nettleton, composed by printer John Wyeth, or possibly by Asahel Nettleton. In the UK, the hymn is also often set to the tune Normandy by C Bost. The Nettleton tune is used extensively in partial or full quotation by the American composer Charles Ives, in such works as the First String Quartet and the piano quintet and song “The Innate.” The Nettleton tune is also quoted at the end of My Trundle Bed by Tullius C. O’Kane. A Shaped note tune called Warrenton also has been sung with a chorus being in 4/4 time or 2/2 cut time.

Christian rock band Jars of Clay has also covered the song as well as veteran Christian artist Scott Wesley Brown. Nashville singer Michael W. Smith has also recorded a popular version on his album All I Owe. Sufjan Stevens recorded a version for his Hark! Songs for Christmas album, which reached 122 in the US charts and is featured in the closing minutes of the season four premiere episode of Friday Night Lights. Gateway Worship performed the song on their album “Living for You” and added a chorus to the song calling it “Come Thou Fount Come Thou King”. It also appears on Phil Wickham’s album ‘sing-a-long’. This song is also sung by Clark Davis in the film Love Comes Softly and is a recurring background music in the film. Mumford & Sons have covered it in a small amount of their live shows.
