‘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.”

‘Trust and Obey’

This is another Sunday school favorite that never fails to move me, here played by the students at Fountainview Academy–Trust and Obey. John Sammis wrote it in 1887. He was attending a Dwight Moody crusade in Massachusetts when a young man in the audience, unable to grasp some of the nuances of the sermon, said he would at least “trust and obey.” We still sing his comment 130 years later.

‘Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide’

Let’s go to Fountainview Academy in British Columbia, with its lovely outdoor scenery wrought by God’s hands, and the voices of its students lifted in praise: Holy Spirit Faithful Guide.

O Light of the World! Light our way through this dark age. Amen.

‘Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior’

A Fanny Crosby hymn from 1868, performed in God’s great outdoors by the young people of Fountainview Academy: I do wish I could thank the soloist by name. May this hymn bless your day and mine.

Yes, He Shall Reign Forever and Ever!

We usually reserve The Hallelujah Chorus for Christmas time or Easter, but I think we want it today. We want to say to the wicked of this world, “We defy you in the name of Jesus Christ the King of Kings! And He shall reign forever, whether you like it or not–nothing you can do about it!”

This performance (indoors, for once) is by the kids at Fountainview Academy.
