400 Students Sing With Cancer-Stricken Teacher Outside His Window

Last Wednesday, 400 students from Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, Tennessee, ditched the pencils and books and got on buses to gather outside a teacher's window.

The students sang songs of worship on the lawn outside the house of Latin and Bible studies teacher Ben Ellis, who is undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of cancer. "The high school principal said, 'Ben has loved us well. Stop what you're doing, load up the buses. We're going to his house to worship with him,'" Nate Morrow, the school's headmaster, told CNN. "He found peace worshiping with others."

Until last week, CNN says, Ellis had been going to work to help him get through radiation treatments and chemotherapy. On Saturday, musician Tim McGraw shared a video on Facebook showing the students singing "Holy Spirit You Are Welcome Here."

The video now has over 20 million views and 390,000 shares.
