‘Wonderful Words of Life’ (Fountainview Academy)

Philip Bliss wrote this hymn in 1874, and was astonished when his state Sunday school association offered to pay him to sing it at their annual meeting. And from then on it’s been a favorite–Wonderful Words of Life, here performed by the students at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.

    Somehow I missed this yesterday, but I’m sure glad I found it. I love this hymn, and these young people are so inspiring in their praise. One thing that’s always very striking in addition to incorporating God’s glorious creation into their beautiful singing is their modesty. It’s refreshing in these times.
