‘Lest Ye Sorrow’

This is I Thessalonians 4:13-18 set to music, and performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words…” Yes–St. Paul has words of comfort for us. The Holy Spirit gave them to him, to give to us.

‘I Know Whom I Have Believed’

A former student at Fountainview Academy says this wonderful 19th century hymn, I Know Whom I Have Believed, was a sort of unofficial anthem of the girls’ dorm. Well, they could’ve picked worse!

I hope you find the Lord’s British Columbia snowscape as refreshing as I do.

‘Holy, Holy, Holy Is What the Angels Sing’

I’ve never heard this hymn before, but I couldn’t resist the background scenery in this video (set design by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth): Holy, Holy, Holy Is What the Angels Sing, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy.

‘For All the Saints’

I never heard this hymn before: lovely, isn’t it? For All the Saints, performed by the young people of Fountainview Academy, British Columbia–and you’ve got to love that backdrop. Set design by God Almighty, our Creator.

‘Rescue the Perishing’

I couldn’t resist this new release from Fountainview Academy, Rescue the Perishing. It’s from their 2017 mission trip to Mongolia. The sprawling city in the background, Ulaan Bataar, a hundred years ago was the frontier town of Kalgan.

I wonder if Mongolia is opening up as a Christian mission field.

‘Blessed Assurance’

I don’t know about you, but I could use some assurance today–Blessed Assurance. Written by Fanny Crosby in 1873, performed by the kids from Fountainview Academy on their tour of Italy–yeah, this is what I needed.

Encore, ‘Jesus Saves’ (Amen!)

We’re all caught up on hymn requests, which means it’s time we got some more; but for the time being, Jesus Saves–by the kids from Fountainview Academy, during their visit to Prague. (Our class trip was to the Bronx Zoo.) I love this hymn, and it was many years before I was able to learn its name.

‘Faith Is the Victory’

Only the folks at Fountainview Academy would have thought of putting the singers aboard a stagecoach to sing Faith Is the Victory. And take a good look at the scenery they drive through. If God preserves this much beauty in a fallen world–to keep us sane, to give us hope–what does He have in store for us when He regenerates His whole creation?

‘A Temple Made of Time’

Here’s a hymn I’ve never heard before: A Temple Made of Time, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy. I hope you like it.

‘Wonderful Words of Life’

How many times did we sing this in Sunday school? Probably never anywhere near as sweetly as the kids at Fountainview Academy. I still play it on my harmonica sometimes: Beautiful Words of Life. Wow, that brings me back…
