‘He Hideth My Soul’

Ugh! Rain again, bad dreams all night–so I’m late.

First hymn I thought of today: He Hideth My Soul, one of some eight or nine thousand hymns written by Fanny Crosby. Sung by Nathan and Lyle with friends and family, in Denton County, Texas.

  1. This is another old, comforting song and we sure can use some comfort right now. We are to have rain again today too.

  2. I wonder how many of Fanny Crosby’s hymns are still popular and sung today? And the ones we never sing, I’m sure there are a few that might be just as pleasing, and maybe even better then those hymns we still sing.

    1. With that many in play, some are bound to have fallen out of use as time goes on. I wonder now how many different Fanny Crosby hymns I’ve posted here.

    2. I went back through the archives and find I’ve posted 20 Fanny Crosby hymns–a few of them quite often. Which means there are a passel of them out there that I haven’t used yet.

  3. Just imagine how many hymn books it would take for all of Fanny Crosby’s hymns. If the number of hymns she wrote was 8,000, and you wanted to sing one of her hymns each day, it would take almost 22 years to sing them all.
