‘Draw Me Nearer,’ from 1906

This recording of Fanny Crosby’s classic hymn, Draw Me Nearer, Blessed Lord, was made in 1906, when she would have still been alive to hear it. Nothing like the Edison photograph was even dreamed of when she was born in 1820. She died in 1915, after writing more than 8,000 hymns–most of which are still sung today.
