By Request, ‘Sitting at the Feet of Jesus’

Requested by Lydia–some of the girls from Fountainview Academy, visiting the Redwood Forest, California (that’s just one tree-trunk they’re sitting on!)–and Sitting at the Feet of Jesus.

‘Softly and Tenderly’

Here are just two kids from Fountainview Academy, at a sand-pit somewhere in British Columbia, with a hymn I hadn’t heard before–Softly and Tenderly. Very sweet, don’t you think?

‘Stand Up! Stand Up for Jesus!’

How much better a world would it be, if Christ’s people stood up for Jesus Christ? But these students from Fountainview Academy are at least making a start at it. Stand Up! Stand Up for Jesus!–from their European tour.

By Request, ‘Abide with Me’

Requested by Lydia (last night), these are the kids from Fountainview Academy singing Abide with Me. This video is from their tour of Europe, but I can’t identify that castle on the sea. Anybody out there know?

‘Count Your Blessings’

Sometimes it’s not so easy to count one’s blessings. But I couldn’t resist the flowered hillside in the spring–and that’s a blessing, too: God’s own handiwork, all around us.

Count Your Many Blessings, sung by the kids from Fountainview Academy, somewhere on the grounds of Weimar College, California.

‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’ …(and We’re Sick)

Some churches won’t play this hymn anymore, so we’ll play it here–Onward, Christian Soldiers, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy.

And last night some kind of affliction hit my wife like a ton of bricks, no sleep for either of us all night long, so please pray for Patty, that this illness leaves her as swiftly as it came: and for me, that I can get through the day. Now is when we wish our cats knew how to answer phones and cook dinner.

(She sounds terrible this morning, but I think if I can get her back to sleep, that will help a lot.)

Encore, ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ (Fountainview Academy)

I just felt like hearing O Come All Ye Faithful one more time. And it’s been years and years since I had anything like a scenic train ride. This is the Kettle Valley Railway in British Columbia, with the Fountainview Orchestra aboard.

By Request, ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ (Fountainview)

Lydia asked for this one, new from Fountainview Academy–In the Bleak Midwinter. (But to me the snow on the trees looks beautiful.)

‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

Well, no one has requested a hymn for today, so I had to go out and find one.

This is Gloria in Excelsis Deo, by the students at Fountainview Academy–and what do you think of that snowscape?

By Request, ‘See Amid the Winter’s Snow’

What a creative setting for a Christmas hymn!

Requested by Lydia–See Amid the Winter’s Snow, performed, in a real snow-scape, by the kids at Fountainview Academy.
