Children's Choir's Powerful Performance Of 'Ride On, King Jesus'

What an exquisite children’s choir!

In this YouTube video, we listen to the PCA Honor Choir’s ‘Ride On, King Jesus’ performance. The choir is from Prestonwood Christian Academy, located in Plano, TX. The mission of their vocal program is to “expose every child to multiple aspects of music, to enrich the PCA Community with a healthy and vibrant artistic culture, and to glorify God as we strive for excellence in the development of the musical gifts He has given.”

The choir, composed of around 70 kids, gives a beautiful performance of this African American spiritual. It was arranged by Joe Cox at the ACSI Choir Festival in February of 2024. 

‘Ride On, King Jesus’ was composed by Hezekiah Brinson, Jr in 1990. The lyrics begin with:

“Ride on King Jesus,

No man can-a hinder me.

Ride on King Jesus,

No man can-a hinder me.”

This spiritual song is ideal for a choir’s performance, as seen in this video. The music flows together phenomenally.  

The song is about being with Jesus, going to heaven, and how no man can hinder you if you are with him. Such an important topic to consider today when we have so many distractions. Keeping your eyes on Jesus is a must. 

Songs such as these that talk about Jesus and who he is to us are important and have been around for a long time. They remind us of what is important in life and where our focus should be. Songs can translate such meaning and importance, and the PCA Honor Choir does an excellent job of doing so. 

“Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.” - Isaiah 41:10
