Have you ever taken time to thumb through a hymnal? In them you can find some of the most beautiful, heartfelt poetry of children of God from days gone by. In many church circles hymns appear to be long forgotten. I, however, believe they should actually have a place in every believer’s life. Their message causes one to focus on God, our need for His love, mercy, grace, and salvation. I love what A.W. Tozer had to say about the hymns and writings of those forefathers of the Christian faith.
So, with that, I will will periodically share some hymns, quotes, and writings from some of God’s faithful of yesteryear. To start with, here is one of my favorites; Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing by Robert Robinson.
Though this hymn was written in 1757 it is, in my opinion, timeless. It’s message should ring true for every believer
