‘This Is My Father’s World’

I love this old hymn, This Is My Father’s World–especially these lines: “And though the wrong seem oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.” Amen!

Performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.

‘Glorious Light’

Honest, I didn’t know they were going to slip a Christmas song into the middle of this. I just wanted to hear a hymn I’d never heard before. And on a hot Fourth of July weekend, the snow appealed to me.

Glorious Light, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy–I hope you enjoy it.

‘Be Thou My Vision’ (Fountainview Academy)

This ancient Irish hymn, thirteen hundred years old if it’s a day, is still loved worldwide. This rendition is by four kids from Fountainview Academy.

If you’re new here, and would like to have me post one of your favorite hymns–just ask.

‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’

This classic hymn has all but disappeared from cringe-friendly churches that seek this world’s approval. But the kids at Fountainview Academy still sing it–Onward, Christian Soldiers.

‘Faith Is the Victory’

Beautiful hymn, beautiful setting, beautiful voices–Faith Is the Victory, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy. “Faith if the victory that overcomes the world.” This is one of the few hymns they sing a cappella–glorious harmony.

By Request, ‘The Love of God’

Requested by Lydia: The Love of God, performed by the kids from Fountainview Academy on a visit to the Ford Farm in Eureka, California.

If you’re new here, we take hymn requests. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.

‘Jesus Saves’

I first heard this hymn played as background music to a Civil War re-enactment, and I remembered it. The second time was at my father’s burial service, on the bells of a nearby church. It was one of my favorites before I ever knew its name–Jesus Saves.

Here performed by the kids from Fountainview Academy during their tour of Rome.

‘God of Our Fathers’

We used to sing this hymn in assembly in high school, before the Supreme Court suddenly decided that mentioning God in a public place was against the law: God of Our Fathers, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy.

It was better then.

By Request, ‘Create in Me a Clean Heart’

This is Psalm 51 set to music–the Psalm David wrote when he realized how grievously he’d sinned in taking Bathsheba for his wife after arranging for her husband, Uriah, to be killed in battle. We all need to prayer this prayer: “Create in me a clean heart and a right spirit.”

Requested by Erlene, sung by girls from Fountainview Academy, and filmed on Moonstone Beach, California–Create in Me a Clean Heart.
