Concerning your earlier statement that my chord didn't appear -- I didn't add my chord with yours, I actually replaced the ones in your post with mine.

 

Sorry I did notice that after I wrote that, but I didn't think that I had posted it otherwise I would have edited that instead of writing a new post.

I took the liberty to edit your post with a recommendation for the chording. This was the easiest way to reply. I'm not familiar with the song but while listening on Cyber Hymnal, I followed on the guitar. I also looked at the PDF sheet music. I don't know if your word placement on some of the movement matched mine, but the chording works fine measure to measure in listening to the tune and matching the sheet music.

 

I actually used a couple of chord inversions to get the voice leading to sound right (and 2 bass runs) when playing but didn't bother noting them since you're playing autoharp.

 

Anyway, look at your post above and try playing it with the chording I placed in your post. If the chording doesn't work for you-- record you or someone else singing it and send it PM (if that can be done) and I will match chord to vocals for you.

Thanks but your chords didn't appear

Thanks I will try that.

Years ago I had an LP or two of Kilby snow, but I don't know what happened to them.  Today I came across about five items by him on Youtube. Only one has a video.  Kilby Snow Plays Troubles.;  If only my fingers would move like that.  He seems to use the autoharp the other way round from most using the thumb pick on the higher strings.

Yes I had the tune to  Come for the Feast is Spread.

 

Here are the chords I use for Come for the feast is spread.  In Sankey’s it is in   Bbut I usually play it in G.  Music is on Cyber Hymnal I believe. This gives me the tune but I am not sure it sounds quite right at times.

G                       C

Come for    the feast is spread

D      C        D7 G

Hark to     the ca-ll

                        C

Come to    the living bread

D      D7         G

Brok-en   for   all

D                   D7           

Come to his “house of wine”

  G               D7        G

Low on his breast re-cline

                   C    

All that he hath is thine

D         D7        G

Come sin-ner come

 

When playing with our piano or the grand piano at church I play it in Bbut on the piano in our rear hall, which is ½ tone down, I play it in A.

 

I have just bought an autoharp on Ebay, and if it is any good, I may tune my current one ½ tone down to match the low piano and it should give me more keys to play in with other hymns.

 

I have got to the stage where I need to put some Voltarol on my hands after a few minute playing, I saw the doc today and I should have asked him for a prescription.  I am still suffering from the dreaded lurgi it is 5 weeks now, the doc said it could last 6, but he sent me for a chest xray tomorrow (Sat) and a blood test Tuesday.  I was hoping to see my son in London today before he flies back to USA tomorrow, but I wasn’t up to it, but my daughter was planning to meet him.

I wish I had a conservatory.

 

 

We live in a very small bungalow, and we have two conservatories, one on the back of the living room which we use as a dining room, and one on the side, going off of the kitchen which my wife uses as a utility room.  I am growing lettuces in the later and a pepper which is nearly finished, and in the former I am growing a small kumquat and a smaller clementine.  They go outside in the summer.

 

This evening I had salad and chips.  They scoured the world for my salad.  Homegrown lettuce, beetroot (UK) tomatoes (Spain) watercress (Florida) cucumber (Canary Isles).
