Where can I find the original score for the hymn, "Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing"?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the version that was removed from the 1985 edition of our hymnals, but I can't find it anywhere. Will someone please help? Thanks!


Edit: I found a PDF that I think might be for the original hymn, but I'm not sure, because I've only played an arrangement from some white book of hymn arrangements. Here's a link to the file: http://openhymnal.org/Pdf/Come_Thou_Fount-Nettleton.pdf

It was page 70 in the old hymnal. I'm looking at it right now and comparing....


Looks like that is the same arrangement...oh...nope. Close, but not quite.


For example, the last half note on the 3rd line in the LDS hymn book was Eb, Bb, G, Eb. In the one you posted it's Eb, Eb, G, Eb. The preceding chord differs too, as to several others in that line. The other 4 lines seem to match at a glance.
