Fanny Crosby

“All the way my Savior leads me
O the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father’s house above.
When my spirit, clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day This my song through endless ages—
Jesus led me all the way;
This my song through endless ages—
Jesus led me all the way.”
~ Fanny Crosby, All the Way My Savior Leads Me

In honor of Fanny J. Crosby, one of the most prolific hymn writers in history writing over 8,000 hymns and gospel songs, who died on this day in 1915.

“O what a happy soul am I!
Although I cannot see,
I am resolved that in this world
Contented I will be;

How many blessings I enjoy
That other people don’t!
To weep and sigh because I’m blind,
I cannot, and I won’t.”

~ Fanny Crosby

In honor of Fanny Crosby, who wrote hundreds of hymns and was blind from her youth.  On this day in 1850, she sought assurance at a Methodist revival service altar and was flooded with joy, and leapt up, shouting “Hallelujah.”
