Fanny Crosby was blind almost from birth, and during her lifetime composed some 1,000 hymns, many of which are still loved and sung today. Toward the end of her life, she was asked what she would most like to see, if she could have her sight restored. She surprised the questioner by saying she’d just as soon not have it restored while she lived, because the first thing she wished to see would be the face of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven. Was this woman a hero of the faith, or what?
Fanny composed Praise Him, Praise Him, Jesus My Savior in 1869.
