The best things in life are the people we love, the places we've seen, and the memories we've made along the way
How lovely to hear 'Come thou fount of every blessing' - pity Duke Special alias Pete never got to sing it at Andrew's wedding due to his rise to fame!
I've listened to the opening line several times now. Does he sing 'Come THY fount...' rather than 'Come THOU fount..'? I'm sure there's a difference in meaning, but not being particularly versed in King James English (the language God speaks??) I'm not sure what that difference is.Nevertheless, I'm sure it's better than my rendition when I sing it to myself which usually ends up as 'Come thou FONT of every blessing.' What's that then? Times New Roman 12pt, I think.
Cosmo, I think the 'thou' 'thy' thing is just the Belfast accent. He does have a particularly strong Belfast accent!
Yes, listening again, I think you're right. A bit like that other great hymn, All hail the parr of Jesus name.
