‘O When Shall I See Jesus?’

The question is not “Will we see Jesus,” but “When?” This is what we must believe. This is our fuel, our hope. This keeps us going: O When Shall I See Jesus, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.

If you ever thought a high-walled narrow gorge with water at the bottom might make for really good acoustics–well, it looks like you were right.


Encore, ‘Gather at the River’

This is the hymn that was with me last night, one of my Uncle Bernie’s favorites: Shall We Gather at the River, performed by the kids of Fountainview Academy.

How I would love to meet you folks out there in person! But I think we’ll meet at tht river–the wonderful river that flows past the throne of God.


‘Holy, Holy, Holy’ (from Fountainview)

Let me know if you’ve had enough of Holy, Holy, Holy. I haven’t. These are the kids from Fountainview Academy singing it from Minister Gardens in Rosedale, British Columbia.


‘My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less’

Hope in Jesus Christ the Lord because “all other ground is sinking sand”–they’ve got that right!

My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less, sung by the kids from Fountainview Academy on a visit to, well, I think that’s Rome, with the Forum in the background. Now watch it turn out to be Wichita, and make me look bad.


‘Blessed Assurance’ (Fountainview)

It’s Peep’s turn to go to the vet this morning, but first a hymn.

Blessed Assurance, one of the many classics by Fanny Crosby, is a hymn I’ve come to love. Here we have it sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy. Yes–beautiful.


‘Faith of Our Fathers’ (Fountainview)

Faith of Our Fathers–I can hardly believe we used to sing this in assembly at high school, until the Supreme Court clued us in that “religion,” except for secular humanism, is not allowed in public places. Later they decided abortion was all right. Then some other things I will not mention.

Was it a different world? What happened to it while I slept?

Anyway, here’s the hymn, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy.


‘He Leaderth Me’ (Fountainview Academy)

This beautiful old hymn from the 1860s still moves us today. I don’t know about you, but I need God’s guiding hand: need it every day.

This is performed here by the kids from Fountainview Academy. If the background scenery looks strange, it’s because they’re not in British Columbia, but visiting Hawaii.

O Light of the World, light thou my path!


‘Create in Me a Clean Heart’

Create in Me a Clean Heart is taken from Psalm 51–the Psalm David wrote when he repented the terrible sin he had committed in taking Uriah the Hittite’s wife, Bathsheba, and arranging for Uriah to be killed in battle: adultery plus murder. This is what the human heart does when it rebels against its Maker and Redeemer. And only God by Jesus Christ can cleanse it.

Performed by some of the kids at Fountainview Academy.


‘Hail Him the King of Glory’

I have to take Robbie in for her checkup this morning, but first a hymn–Hail Him the King of Glory, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy in British Columbia: with God’s own stage settings in the background.


Encore! ‘To God Be the Glory’

I hope you don’t mind my repeating this hymn selection: To God Be the Glory, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia. This is the hymn that called to me this morning. Turn up the volume! We live in an evil age; but as I once heard a wise Christian lady say, “That’s the time to sing louder.”
