By Request, ‘I Know Whom I Have Believed’

And we have a hymn request from Erlene–I Know Whom I Have Believed, sung by Marshall Hall, with lyrics inspired by the Scriptures: 2 Timothy 1:2, to be exact. You could look it up!

‘I Know Whom I Have Believed’

I’d never heard this hymn before, but I recognized the title as coming from the scriptures (2 Timothy 1:2), so I knew I’d want to post it: I Know Whom I Have Believed, published in 1893, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Background scenery by God the Father.

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 Know Whom I Have Believed’

We all know there are times when faith comes very hard, and belief is hard to find. God knows, too. I’m having one of those days.

Well, when things go bad, sing louder. Here are the kids at Fountainview Academy, with I Know Whom I Have Believed.

‘I Know Whom I Have Believed’

[F]or I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.   2 Timothy 1:12

I’d never heard this hymn before–I Know Whom I Have Believed, here sung beautifully by the young people at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for inspiring the creation of beauty that also conveys truth.

By Request, ‘I Know Whom I Have Believed’

Okay, Linda, here’s the hymn you asked for–I Know Whom I Have Believed, sung by Marshall Hall. Complete with saxophone solo.

Somehow this made me remember the most embarrassing moment in my whole life, which occurred during a service at our Dutch Reformed Church.

I can’t remember exactly why,  but something  convinced me that this particular service was intended to be in dramatic contrast to our usually staid and orderly procedure–that today we were supposed to have the congregation get enthusiastically involved in the business. So the minister read a verse, and I stood up and shouted “Hallelujah!”


And every single eye in the congregation zeroed in on me–which is practically the last thing on earth that any 17-year-old ever wants to happen.

I hope I don’t dream about it tonight.
