I loved this hymn for years, without knowing any of its lyrics, or its name. Church bells played it now and then; that’s how I heard it. Used to be you could hear all the church bells in this town. Now you can’t: too much traffic, too many people with leaf-blowers.
So here it is: Jesus Saves, performed by the kids of Fountainview Academy during their visit to Rome.
And we are open for readers’ hymn requests, open all day…
I wanted to make sure to post something by Fountainview Academy. Crown Him with Many Crowns, by band and chorus–somewhere outdoors in beautiful British Columbia. God really does provide lovely settings; nor does He charge for their use.
If I don’t make a mess of this, you’ll be viewing it today as Patty and I sit in the doctor’s office, waiting for assorted tests.
Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy–and please pray for us today.
P.S.–Of course I botched the job, so tomorrow’s hymn now appears today and I’ll have to post today’s hymn for tomorrow and then I think I’ll go soak my head.
This is the first time I’ve ever heard this hymn, My Faith Has Found a Resting Place. Performed by the students of Fountainview Academy on their European tour, at Bethlemen Chapel in Prague, Czech Republic.
I love this hymn, and right around here, right about now, there’s a whole lot of saving needed. Feels like the rowboat’s filling up with water. Save us, O Lord.
This is by the kids from Fountainview Academy, visiting Prague on their European tour.
This is the hymn that was with me when I woke this morning, so this is the hymn I post today: and I wanted it done by the kids at Fountainview Academy, and was happy to find that available: Holy, Holy, Holy.
And don’t let the setting fool you, they’re still in Canada: Minter Gardens. Yes, it looks like a fantasy landscape. But don’t worry, it’s real.
The congregation at the church I grew up in used to really belt out this hymn, Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken. We made the rafters ring. The kids from Fountainview Academy, perhaps with an eye to the stability of their own rafters, sing this hymn outdoors.
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.
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.
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.
