‘Draw Me Nearer’–a 1906 Recording

Fanny Crosby, born in 1820 and blind for almost all her life, wrote over 8,000 hymns, many of them still loved and sung to this day. If I posted a different Fanny Crosby hymn here every day, it would still take some 20 years to post them all.

This antique Edison recording was made in 1906, when Fanny Crosby was still alive to hear it.

This is for Erlene, one of her favorite hymns–well, for everybody, really.
