Mack Wilberg's Arrangement of “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing”: The History and Lyrics

Mack Wilberg's arrangement of "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is a fan favorite, and the video for the song is currently the third most viewed video on the Choir's YouTube channel. Wilberg captivates audiences and keeps their attention through his unique arrangements. He once said, “I work very hard to stimulate and keep people’s attention. Music ought to be an enjoyable journey for the listener.” The current arrangement for the hymn was written by Wilberg while he was director of the Brigham Young University Men's Chorus. His many musical works have been performed by artists and choral organizations around the world and are now performed weekly by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, for which he is the director.
