Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing - for Harp

Another hymn that I like for Thanksgiving is "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing."  It works particularly well on harp.  The line, "Here I raise my ebenezer, hither by Thy help I'm come" always comes to mind for me with this song.  This video is all about ebenezers, or standing stones, memorial stones, etc. It is around 2-1/2 minutes long.
