Bonus Hymn: ‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’

This is the hymn that comes to my mind this afternoon. We are in an evil age and we need more Christian soldiers.

Our sword is the sword of the spirit, and the word of God; our shield, the shield of faith. We wear the breastplate of righteousness, and the helmet of salvation (Ephesians 6: 10-18). And our ammunition is our prayers.

We have no king but Jesus Christ.

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

‘To God Be the Glory’

Turn we unto something to brighten up this day a little–To God Be the Glory, sung by students at Fountainview Academy. They have an indoor version of it, too; but in this video, at least, the sun is shining.


I picked out this lovely hymn for us today–Redeemed, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy. Never heard it before.

And there’s hardly anybody here this morning…

Best Ever ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’

We posted this last year and it didn’t win the carol contest; but this year it’s really getting views! But that’s only because it’s so wonderful. Moves me just about to tears.

O Come All Ye Faithful, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy on this cute little train–on the Kettle Valley Railway in Summerland, British Columbia.

What would you give to take this ride with them?

‘For All the Saints’

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.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

You can’t beat this combination–a beach in Hawaii, a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, and students from Fountainview Academy to perform it: He Hideth My Soul.

As of today, I need a few dozen hymns to fill the cart with Your Favorite Hymns. So step right up, don’t be shy!

‘Create in Me a Clean Heart’

Erlene requested this one: Create in Me a Clean Heart, sung by students from Fountainview Academy visiting Moonstone Beach, California. If the words sound familiar, well, they should–they’re taken from Psalm 51.

‘Break Thou the Bread of Life’ (Fountainview)

I’m always happy when a hymn by Fountainview Academy comes up on the list–these kids can really sing! they can make music without musical instruments, in the service of the Lord. Can’t beat that. So here they are with Break Thou the Bread of Life.

‘Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus!’

Your Favorite Hymns continues; and we start the day with an old Sunday school favorite, Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus! Sung by the students from Fountainview Academy: this was on their European tour, we are not told exactly where.

‘Faith of Our Fathers’

Your Favorite Hymns continues with Faith of Our Fathers, sung by students from Fountainview Academy on their European tour.
