By Request, ‘Draw Me Nearer’

Our first hymn request of the day is from Erlene–showing the new visitors how it’s done.

This recording of Fanny Crosby’s Draw Me Nearer, sung by Harry Anthony and James Harrison, is 110 years old! It’s on an antique Edison Records disc.

In addition to the hymn itself, these voices from the past have a glorious message for us: Christ’s Church is forever.

One comment on “By Request, ‘Draw Me Nearer’”

  1. I had never heard this rendition, but it was interesting to see in one of the pictures, the old record player. My grandmother had an almost identical
    unit in her parlor. There were many records, which my cousin Shirley loved to play whenever she visited. It was called the Victorola.
