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.
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.
Here’s yet another hymn I’d never heard before–Give Me the Bible. Sung by the kids from Fountainview Academy, on their European tour. I’m sure that’s a famous building where they are, but I can’t identify it.
Beautiful hymn, beautiful performance, and beautiful setting–Abide with Me, performed by students from Fountainview Academy on their European tour. I’d very much like to know where and what is that cool building in the background. Anybody recognize it?
I’ve heard snatches of this hymn throughout my life, but never the whole thing until now: My Redeemer, performed by the young people at Fountainview Academy. “He walks with me and He talks with me…” I always wondered where that’s from, and now I know.
Here’s another hymn I hadn’t heard before–Take the World, But Give Me Jesus, sung by the young people of Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.
“All things were made by him: and without him was not any thing made that was made.” John 1:3
I had never heard this hymn before, until just now–O Love That Will Not Let Me Go, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy. It was late summer or early fall, if the color of the vegetation gives us any clue.
If you’re new here, we like to start each blogging day with a hymn, and we take requests. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just let us know.
This hymn by Charles Wesley, Depth of Mercy, first appeared in hymnals in 1780. Sung here by the kids at Fountainview Academy. It must have taken an act of faith to get a grand piano up there by the lip of the quarry.
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.
Another hymn I’d never heard before–I Will Follow Thee, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia. Sweet and soothing.
