‘Draw Me Nearer’ (the Past Sings to Us)

This is one of more than 8,000 hymns written by Fanny Crosby–Draw Me Nearer–and this recording is one of the few she would have had the opportunity to hear during her own lifetime.

Fanny died in 1915, and this Edison cylinder is from 1906. Many of you are two young to remember records and record-players. Well, these discs go back way before that. This is the very beginning of recorded sound.

Well, we all age; but Fanny Crosby’s hymns go on and on, praising and loving our Eternal God.
