‘Blessed Assurance’

I hope I haven’t played this hymn too often. It was the first one that popped into my head last night–Blessed Assurance, a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, sung by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet. Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.

By Request, ‘Blessed Assurance’

Okay! Book chapter’s written, and I’ve got to write a Newswithviews column, somehow–but first we have a hymn request from Erlene–Blessed Assurance, by Fanny Crosby in 1873, sung by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet.

Antidote! ‘Blessed Assurance’

How do we get out of the dumpster fire that’s the nooze today?

With a hymn!

We thank Erlene for asking for this–Blessed Assurance, by Fanny Crosby, sung by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet with background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.

When things get really bad… sing louder!

‘Blessed Assurance’

You don’t often hear Blessed Assurance with a flute solo. Nathan and Lyle, with a few family members, have treated us to this cozy rendition of Fanny Crosby’s classic hymn.

‘Blessed Assurance’

Can’t go wrong with a hymn by Fanny Crosby! Blessed Assurance she wrote in 1875, and it’s still as popular as ever. Sung here by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet. Background sets by God the Father. (Credit to SE Samonte posting on YouTube: I use many of the hymns posted on his site.)

By Request, ‘Blessed Assurance’

Susan asked for this, and it’s one of my favorities, too: Blessed Assurance, by Fanny Crosby–Christians have been loving it since 1873. This rendition is by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet, with God’s own handiwork for the background. As I write this, we’re having a foggy morning here–just like in the picture of fog blanketing a valley. As long as you’re not driving, you can enjoy the fog sometimes.

Fanny Crosby wrote somewhere between 8,000 and 9,000 hymns in her career. Blessed Assurance is one of them. I hope you like the way Alan Jackson sings it.

Please feel free to add to the list of Your Favorite Hymns. There’s no danger we’ll run out of them!

‘Blessed Assurance’ (The Swanson Bros.)

You can’t beat this–a classic Fanny Crosby hymn, Blessed Assurance, sung by our friends and colleagues Joshua and Jeremy. They created this video as a Father’s Day present. I know my father would’ve rejoiced in such a gift, but people are moved to tears by my guitar-playing for other than the usual reasons.

‘Blessed Assurance’ (Fountainview Academy)

I heard just a tiny snatch of this hymn last night, but that was enough to make me want to post it. Words by Fanny Crosby, performance by the students of Fountainview Academy–you can’t do better than that! Blessed Assurance: sung during the Academy’s tour of Europe.

‘Blessed Assurance’

A hymn from 1873, written by Fanny Crosby–you can’t go wrong. Blessed Assurance, sung a capella by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet, with the work of God’s hands for background. I’ll never get over the way the human voice can be turned into a musical instrument.
