Come Thou Fount of Every Beaning

I've been asked to play "Come Thou Fount" on the piano in a wedding and I'm having trouble finding an arrangement that fits what the couple wants. Essentially, they want this but the author hasn't published any sheet music. I can play the melody and chords and mess around with the left hand, but I'm hoping I can find sheet music that spells out some intricate and flowing flourishes for me to practice. Has anyone played or seen a good arrangement lately? No key signature preference.

Perhaps Chris Rice's version would work? He's published the sheet music.

I have a Robert Vandall version in a book called It Is Well. It's nice and not terribly difficult.

Try They have recordings for some (not all) of their sheet music, so you can hear if it's what you're looking for, and there are also previews if that's more helpful. The John Wyeth / Kristen Allred arrangement seems to have some of the flourishes you're looking for.

There are quite a few versions here (look for piano solo). Can't vouch for their quality at all, but some options anyway.

Thanks, everyone! The wedding went well today. I ended up putting together little bits from the suggestions here and some other things I found to get exactly what I want.
