By Request, ‘When I Cry’

Lydia asked for this one–When I Cry, sung by students at Fountainview Academy. It reminds me of the shortest verse in the Bible: “Jesus wept” (John 11:35). It’s amazing, how much can be said in just two words.


‘Blessed Assurance’ (Fountainview Academy)

I heard just a tiny snatch of this hymn last night, but that was enough to make me want to post it. Words by Fanny Crosby, performance by the students of Fountainview Academy–you can’t do better than that! Blessed Assurance: sung during the Academy’s tour of Europe.


‘Shall We Gather at the River?’

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God… (Psalm 46:4)

Christians loved this hymn when it was published in 1864, and we still love it today: Shall We Gather at the River? Sung by the students at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.


By Request, ‘Does Jesus Care?’

Requested by Lydia, let’s make it the first post of the day–Does Jesus Care, written in 1901 by Frank Graff, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy. Doesn’t that snow look beautiful!


‘In the Sweet By and By’ (Fountainview)

Don’t ask me how they got the whole chorus out on the lake. It must be great acoustics out there, though: In the Sweet By and By, performed by the kids from Fountainview Academy.


‘Do You Know My Jesus?’

Not exactly a hymn request, but we do like to gratify our readers when we can. So this one’s a special delivery to Phoebe, to whom it has lately provided strength and solace–Do You Know My Jesus, sung by students from Fountainview Academy. Shifts of golden sunlight pouring down amid the trees… by God the Father.


By Request,’Moment by Moment’

Requested by Lydia–Moment by Moment, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy. That’s Bear River in Auburn, California, where they’re standing.


‘Wonderful Words of Life’

This is a Sunday school favorite, we must have sung it hundreds of times–Wonderful Words of Life. But we couldn’t sing it like these kids from Fountainview Academy. They couldn’t figure out how to get the piano into the rowboat, but everything else works beautifully.


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?
