‘Blessed Assurance’

I don’t know about you, but I could use some assurance today–Blessed Assurance. Written by Fanny Crosby in 1873, performed by the kids from Fountainview Academy on their tour of Italy–yeah, this is what I needed.


‘Blessed Assurance’ (a capella)

If you’re not moved by this, better check to see if you can fog a mirror: Blessed Assurance, by Fanny Crosby (1873), sung by the Harpet Gospel Quartet. Background images by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


Bonus Hymn: ‘Blessed Assurance’

That news about the stabbing at the library left a bad taste in my mouth. They’re killing our culture, and the culture is killing us back. So let’s wash it out with a hymn by Fanny Crosby–Blessed Assurance, performed by Nathan (mandolin) and Lyle (guitar) with family and friends, Denton County, Texas.

Do you believe the talent that’s out there? The girl in the purple shirt: she sings like an angel–man, does she sing!–and also plays the flute.

Ah, that’s better. Feeling sane again. Thank you, Lord.


Encore (and Then Some!): ‘Blessed Assurance’

Blessed Assurance has been in my mind lately, and so has Fountainview Academy. When I went to youtube this morning to select a hymn, I soon settled on this. Then, returning here to post it, I first noticed I had a new message from “thewhiterabbit”–requesting Blessed Assurance as the hymn for the day.

Now that is cool!

So here it is, words by Fanny Crosby, performed by Fountainview Academy. And if the background scenery looks funny, it’s because the kids were visiting Italy at the time.


‘Blessed Assurance’ (A Capella)

I need all the assurance that My Lord can give me, all the time. And sometimes we can find it in a hymn. This is the Harpeth Gospel Quartet, with no musical instruments but their voices, singing Fanny Crosby’s Blessed Assurance. And the beautiful scenery on the background testifies that God is nigh.


‘Blessed Assurance’ (Fountainview)

It’s Peep’s turn to go to the vet this morning, but first a hymn.

Blessed Assurance, one of the many classics by Fanny Crosby, is a hymn I’ve come to love. Here we have it sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy. Yes–beautiful.


Beautiful! ‘Blessed Assurance’

This classic Fanny Crosby hymn began asserting itself in my mind last night–Blessed Assurance, here performed by Nathan and Lyle and assorted family members in Denton County, Texas. That young girl with the flute has got some voice to go with it! Shows you what you can do, when you set your mind to praise the Lord at home.


‘Blessed Assurance’

Fanny Crosby wrote this hymn in 1873–Blessed Assurance. Music by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet. Background sets by God’s creating hand.

P.S.–I’m early today because… We’ve got to get this email fixed so I can do my editorial work, and I don’t know how many hours it’s going to cost me today. But first the hymn!


More ‘Blessed Assurance’

I hope you don’t mind my posting this hymn again–Blessed Assurance, by Fanny Crosby, 1873, here performed by our friends in Denton County, Texas. Somehow today, at least for me, it brings to mind a line from Psalm 11o: “…in the beauties of holiness, in the womb of the morning.”

Meanwhile, I hope these posts are actually displaying to you. I don’t know what to expect from WordPress anymore.


‘Blessed Assurance’ (We Need It!)

This is the hymn that came to me this morning: Blessed Assurance, another jewel out of Fanny  Crosby’s treasury. Is there anybody here who doesn’t need the blessed assurance God provides?
