The talented students of Fountainview Academy present a beautiful music video of ‘Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.’
The Christian high school is based in southern British Columbia, Canada, and has the Province of BC Ministry of Education accreditation.
Students from all over the world come here due to its balanced approach to education and where every staff member is personally committed to the success and strives for the highest standards in every respect.
Today they present a beautiful music video of the Christian hymn ‘Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing’ written by the 18th-century pastor and hymnodist Robert Robinson who wrote the song in 1758 at the age of 22.
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love
The words of the song are inspired by divine grace, are based on 1 Samuel 7:12, in which the prophet Samuel raises a stone as a monument, saying, “Hitherto hath the Lord helped us” (KJV).
Here I raise my Ebenezer
Here there by Thy great help I’ve come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood
Today as the country celebrates Memorial Day, we thank Jesus for the price He paid to free us from sin and hell and also the brave men and women in the armed forces who are paying a heavy price for our freedom.
