Songs for the new hymnal
« on: August 09, 2019, 06:01:18 pm »
It was my favorite hymn before it was taken out of the hymnal in 1985. Now it is the most requested song to be put into the new book. The odds are good that it will return.
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Maybe. I think it was copyright issues/royalties that played a significant part in the decision to drop it. And now take in consideration that we're looking for translation and international considerations, so it's not just if the church wants to.

Just checked.  It's public domain, though it may not have been 34 years ago when the last hymnal came out.

Oops! I think I was confusing it with some other hymns that aren't included in the Gospel Library/Online editions of the hymn book.

At the time I thought it was Copywrite issues but this article clearly states that it was because it was a lesser-known/less popular hymn.
