Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.

--Ro­bert Ro­bin­son (1726-1790) Methodist pastor and hymnist

Kiner Creek Falls, Laurel Run Park, Church Hill, TN.

Not necessarily an Easter hymn, but it's the one that came to mind -- and it fits the photo for today. In a way, this is a song for Peter -- Whose heart, like ours, was prone to stray. Here's a very moving version of this beautiful hymn...


  1. How do you do it? Something grand and stirring each time! You have an amazing gift of seeing and capturing the beauty.

  2. Wow. I've never seen that much water flowing over Kiner Creek Falls. Not an easy place to photograph - excellent shot.
