Folk worship band Celtic Worship releases their Integrity Music debut single "Come Thou Fount" this Friday. The Scottish Collective put their stunning arrangement together quite instinctively, making use of both vocalists Steph Macleod and Naomi Stirrat, who deliver warmth and power in each verse. A beautiful instrumental melody is also weaved through by Mhairi Marwick on the fiddle and Scott Wood on bagpipes and whistle.
"Come Thou Fount" is the lead single from their highly anticipated new album 'Morningtide' coming in the autumn. The song is a traditional hymn, originally written in 1758 by Robert Robinson.
And I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God;
He to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood.
The words beautifully remind us that God is the One who takes initiative; He sought us when we were still strangers, rescued us, and takes us to arrive at home. 'Come Thou Fount' paints a huge and wonderful picture.
