By Request, ‘Make Me a Captive, Lord’

Requested by Susan: Make Me a Captive, Lord, sung by students from Fountainview Academy–standing under a banyan tree on their visit to Hawaii.

If you have a hymn you’d like to share here, just let us know, and we’ll post it for you.

‘Your Grace Still Amazes Me’

(Don’t ask how they got a piano up that slope.)

I’d never heard this worship song before–Your Grace Still Amazes Me, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy. Background sets by God the Father, the work of His hands.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

No likes, no comments, no hymn requests today so far; but I do have this hymn in mind. One of eight or nine thousand hymns that Fanny Crosby wrote: He Hideth My Soul, sung on a beach in Hawaii by students from Fountainview Academy.

I’m glad they didn’t try to bring a piano down the cliff.

‘Wonderful Words of Life’

No hymn requests yet: so I dip into my bag of favorites and come up with a good old Sunday school favorite, Wonderful Words of Life, played and sung by the students at Fountainview Academy.

How they get that piano into the woods is a mystery to me.

‘Abide With Me’

No hymn requests today, as yet. Well, it’s early. Open the hymn shop and see who comes in.

For the time being, we have Abide With Me, performed by students at Fountainview Academy. Background sets by God the Father.

‘To God Be the Glory’

I had a hankering for this hymn today; and as there are no hymn requests as yet this morning, and none pending–well, why not? To God Be the Glory, in a mountain meadow, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy.

‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’ (Fountainview)

There are so many beautiful renditions of this hymn. Here’s one by the kids at Fountainview Academy–What a Friend We Have in Jesus. This is a real Sunday school favorite; and a few people have told me they like it when I whistle it as I walk through their neighborhood.

By Request, ‘Crown Him with Many Crowns’

I don’t want to turn myself into a DJ, but we need these hymns to remind us that God is with us, whatever happens. It’s an antidote to the nooze.

Requested by Phoebe–Crown Him With Many Crowns, done up royally by the students at Fountainview Academy.

‘He Leadeth Me’

I could use God’s leading, just now; I feel almost like I’m stuck in a hall of mirrors.

Anyhow, here are the students from Fountainview Academy on a beach in Hawaii, with an old Sunday school favorite–He Leadeth Me.

By Request, ‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’

A lot of squishy churches won’t sing this hymn anymore. Shame on them: they crave this fallen world’s approval.

Requested by Erlene, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy–Onward, Christian Soldiers.

Sing it louder, so those churches can hear you.
