‘To God Be the Glory’

This is one of my favorite hymns–To God Be the Glory, by Fanny Crosby (1875)–but I don’t think I’ve posted this rendition of it before, by the students at Fountainview Academy. Praise the Lord, the God of our salvation.

‘Spirit of the Living God’

Another hymn I’d never heard before–Spirit of the Living God, sung by four lads from Fountainview Academy… at the bottom of the rocky gorge of Mill Creek, Utah: God’s handiwork.

Bonus Hymn, ‘Faith of Our Fathers’

I wanted to post another hymn before the Freedom From Religion Foundation, sponsoring the Democrat Party, tries to suppress hymns altogether.

Faith of Our Fathers, sung by the students at Fountainview Academy.

Pray harder, sing louder, and proclaim the truth.

By Request, ‘Ring the Bells of Heaven’

And here’s a hymn request from Lydia, her first–Ring the Bells of Heaven, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy.

The weather has driven me back indoors today, but I’m going to try to keep working on my book.

By Request, ‘I Must Tell Jesus’

There’s always room here for a hymn by Fountainview Academy. Here they’re on Kauai, Hawaii (I knew right away they weren’t in New Jersey).

Requested by Joshua–I Must Tell Jesus. I’m afraid the lyrics don’t scan too well in Spanish, but that’s the breaks.

‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’

People have been loving this hymn since the 1860s–What a Friend We Have in Jesus. Here we have it performed by the students at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.


‘Fairest Lord Jesus’ (Fountainview)

The hymnal in our church, way back when, said this was a crusaders’ hymn from the Middle Ages; but nobody seems to know how old it really is.

Fairest Lord Jesus, sung on the shores of Seton Lake by a few of the students at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.

By Request, ‘Create in Me a Clean Heart’

Recognize this? It’s Psalm 51, set to music.

Requested by Erlene, some of the kids from Fountainview Academy on Moonstone Beach, California, singing Create in Me a Clean Heart–David’s psalm of repentance.

By Request: ‘Holy, Holy, Holy Is What the Angels Sing’

There’s too much unedifying nooze out there today, no hope of getting to it all–so I won’t try. Instead, let’s take a sanity break. Hymn request by Susan: Holy, Holy, Holy Is What the Angels Sing. Those kids at Fountainview Academy–just beautiful, their singing. Even more beautiful: the word of God, and the good news of the Gospel.

May the Lord equip us for His service in this evil age.

By Request, ‘Faith of Our Fathers’

Joshua requested this much-needed break from stupid and unedifying nooze–Faith of Our Fathers, sung by the kids from Fountainview Academy on their visit to Italy. This was one of the first grown-ups’ hymns they taught us in our Sunday school, way back when.
