Todd and Nicole Yonkman posted on their blog a YouTube video of Sufijan Stevens and group singing the traditional hymn, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.” It’s a great hymn tune, with a compelling verse. Banjo and muted trumpet accompany. The Yonkmans name it one of their favorites, and it’s one of mine too.

Check it out.
