A now-viral video taken at a private Christian school in North Carolina shows students taking time for a special moment ahead of Hurricane Florence.
Paris Verme, a cook at Wayne Christian School in Goldsboro, shot the video of the youngsters performing “Eye of the Storm” by Christian singer Ryan Stevenson on Tuesday and posted it on her Facebook page.
“In the eye of the storm/ You remain in control/ And in the middle of the war/ You guard my soul,” are just some of the lyrics the students are heard singing.
The Facebook post said the children sang “after praying for everyone” ahead of the storm.
As of Thursday evening, the video has been viewed 1.6 million times. The clip also received more than 1,600 comments and 29,000 shares.
“As Im preparing to head to Virginia to begin my “Eye of the Storm Tour”, I came across this post today…” he wrote in part. “I’m so moved to see this entire school preparing for the hurricane; praying for others! Beyond humbled to play any role in spreading hope & comfort to people experiencing hardship! My thoughts and prayers with everyone in the path of Florence!”
