The Mozart hymn from The Magic Flute and Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing are the two 
hymns that I miss the most from the old hymnal.  I've even heard the Tabernacle Choir 
do the latter one in General Conference after it was removed from our hymnal.  I wish 
they would put it back in.  It is the hymn that I whistle under my breath sometimes 
all day long.
