‘At the Cross’

I hadn’t heard this hymn before, but I was sure the kids at Fountainview Academy would sing it beautifully–At the Cross.

We used to have some lovely places like that, right around here.

We wait for the restoration of all things.


‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’ (Fountainview)

Careful! This hymn might stay with you all day, once you’ve heard it–Onward, Christian Soldiers, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy in British Columbia.

Oh, that woodland path! We used to have places like that around here, when I was a boy. Or did I only dream them?


‘Waiting and Watching’

And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.   –Mark 13:37

I pray that when the King of kings returns, He will find us at our posts, fulfilling His command to “occupy until I come.”

Watching and Waiting, sung by the students of Fountainview Academy, with canoes, no less. Gorgeous background scenery by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


‘Trust and Obey’ (Fountainview Academy)

An old Sunday school favorite, Trust and Obey, has been knocking at my door since yesterday afternoon, so I guess I’d better post it. Performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy. Gorgeous fall scenery by God the Father: here, at Hat Creek Ranch, British Columbia.


‘Sound the Battle Cry’

Here’s one of those hymns that makes lukewarm Christians cringe–but the metaphor of Christians as soldiers goes all the way back to Paul (“Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier”, Philippians 2:25). So there. Sung by the kids of Fountainview Academy as they visit Prague in their European tour.


‘Wonderful Words of Life’ (Fountainview Academy)

Actually, I’m at the eye doctor’s as you’re reading this, but here, at the moment, it’s Friday morning. Got that?

Wonderful Words of Life, a Sunday school favorite, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy… wonderful.


‘Be Born in Me’

I had never heard this one before–Be Born in Me, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy.

Jesus Christ is the answer.


‘Jesus Saves’ (Fountainview Academy)

I loved this hymn for years, without knowing any of its lyrics, or its name. Church bells played it now and then; that’s how I heard it. Used to be you could hear all the church bells in this town. Now you can’t: too much traffic, too many people with leaf-blowers.

So here it is: Jesus Saves, performed by the kids of Fountainview Academy during their visit to Rome.

And we are open for readers’ hymn requests, open all day…


Bonus Hymn, ‘Crown Him with Many Crowns’

I wanted to make sure to post something by Fountainview Academy. Crown Him with Many Crowns, by band and chorus–somewhere outdoors in beautiful British Columbia. God really does provide lovely settings; nor does He charge for their use.


‘Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide’

If I don’t make a mess of this, you’ll be viewing it today as Patty and I sit in the doctor’s office, waiting for assorted tests.

Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy–and please pray for us today.

P.S.–Of course I botched the job, so tomorrow’s hymn now appears today and I’ll have to post today’s hymn for tomorrow and then I think I’ll go soak my head.
