Fountainview Academy Presents Cover Of ‘I’ll Go Where You Want Me To Go’

Fountainview Academy presents a breathtaking music video of ‘I’ll Go Where You Want Me To Go.’

The music video shows the talented students of Fountainview Academy play various musical instruments and sing the words of this Christian hymn.

The words of the song were written by Ma­ry Brown, and Charles E. Pri­or. The orig­in­al ti­tle was Go Stand and Speak, with mu­sic by Pri­or. The music was composed by Car­rie E. Roun­se­fell, 1894.

It may not be on the mountain height
Or over the stormy sea
It may not be at the battle’s front
My Lord will have need of me
But if, by a still, small voice he calls
To paths that I do not know
I’ll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in thine
I’ll go where you want me to go

This well known mis­sion­a­ry and con­se­cra­tion hymn was used by a class of a hun­dred mis­sion­a­ry nurs­es at the Bat­tle Creek San­i­tar­i­um as their class hymn. They would sing it ev­ery Sun­day af­ter­noon as they would ga­ther for a so­cial meet­ing. The students were from near­ly ev­ery State of the Un­ion, from Aus­tral­ia, South Af­ri­ca, South Am­er­i­ca, Bul­gar­ia, Ar­men­ia, and near­ly all the Eur­o­pe­an coun­tries. They agreed that af­ter they had part­ed and gone on to dif­fer­ent fields, they would sing this hymn ev­ery Sun­day as they had done dur­ing their class-days.

I’ll go where you want me to go, dear Lord
Over mountain or plain or sea
I’ll say what you want me to say, dear Lord
I’ll be what you want me to be

This is such a beautiful cover of this classic hymn by Fountainview Academy and reminds us that we must always be ready to go out to give the gospel wherever the Lord has called us to go to.
