Description: Originally written by James P. Carrell for four parts in his Songs of Zion, 1821, called Jewin Street, with words from Robert Robinson's hymn, Come, thou fount of every blessing. Arranged by William Walker in Southern Harmony in 1835, as Restoration for three parts and words by Robert Robinson, 1758, with three stanzas of meter 87. 87. D. Carrell used the second half of Robinson's first stanza in his composition. Walker sets his tune to a different hymn (John Newton's Mercy, O thou son of David). William Walker wrote a fourth part (Alto) for his arrangement in 1876. William Walker's version was re-arranged by T. B. Newton and S. W. Everett for the 1911 edition of The Sacred Harp, p. 312; for words they returned to Robinson's hymn.
