‘Light of the World’ (John 1)

This is the only true light for us sinners–Jesus Christ Our Savior, the only light that saves us and lights our way.

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  –John 1:4-5

Light of the World, by Charles Wesley; sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.


‘Soldiers of Christ, Arise’

All you need is Fanny Crosby, Isaac Watts, and Charles Wesley, and you’ve got enough hymns to last a lifetime.

Soldiers of Christ Arise, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band in 18th century style–this may well be what the hymn sounded like when it was first sung in a worship service.


‘Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise’

‘Depth of Mercy’

This hymn by Charles Wesley, Depth of Mercy, first appeared in hymnals in 1780. Sung here by the kids at Fountainview Academy. It must have taken an act of faith to get a grand piano up there by the lip of the quarry.
