Let us turn to something infinitely more edifying–Savior, More Than Life to Me by Fanny Crosby, performed by the Harding College Concert Choir.

The other day was the anniversary of Fanny Crosby’s death, in 1915. During her 95 years of life, this blind woman composed between 8,500 and 9,000 hymns! That deserves an exclamation point. Indeed, if you have a favorite hymn dating from the 19th or the early 20th century, chances are Fanny Crosby wrote it.
What a gift God gave her! And what a gift she was to us.
