I’d never heard this one before; but that’s why it’s “Your Favorite Hymns” and not just mine: in this case, one of Phoebe’s. For All the Saints, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy–and how they got all those musicians onto that raft without anybody falling in, well, that’s something to ponder.
These are the hymns that readers have asked for, they’re on the list of Your Favorite Hymns… And I’m more than halfway down the list, so you’re all invited to add to it. Don’t worry, we won’t run out of hymns.
This is For All the Saints, by Vaughan Williams, sung by the First United Methodist Sanctuary Choir in Houston.
I never heard this hymn before: lovely, isn’t it? For All the Saints, performed by the young people of Fountainview Academy, British Columbia–and you’ve got to love that backdrop. Set design by God Almighty, our Creator.

Today is September 11. I don’t want to get involved in writing about it, because someone’s bound to come along with “It was an inside job, George Bush did it!” And all that will do is make me mad. I lost nice people in that chapter of the jihad, and I don’t take kindly to loopy conspiracy theories about it.
But here in the hymn there is comfort. Read the lyrics. Let the music do its work. Believe the Bible; be faithful to Our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings.
