‘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.


‘Blessed Assurance’

You can never go wrong with a hymn by Fanny Crosby. This is Blessed Assurance (1873), sung by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet. Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


‘Blessed Assurance’

This is one of the 8,000 hymns that Fanny Crosby wrote–Blessed Assurance, sung here by Alan Jackson. This stirs my soul; I hope it does the same for you.


An Answered Prayer, Plus Hymn Request

I’m hurrying to get this posted before Joshua goes to bed. I don’t know what time it is in Japan, but it’s either very late or very early. Oh, well, he can see it when he gets up again: Blessed Assurance, sung by Alan Jackson.

And on top of it, we’ve got some good news–an answered prayer.

On May 5 Joshua asked us to pray for his grandmother and aunt in Japan, who had heard of the Gospel but not yet received it. Today Joshua reports that both are now reading the Gospel of John–and may the Holy Spirit speak to them! In Jesus’ name, Amen.


‘Blessed Assurance’ (Fountainview)

We can’t go wrong with a classic Fanny Crosby hymn, sung by the kids from Fountainview Academy: Blessed Assurance. This performance was during their tour of Italy.

I don’t have a car today, so I’ll be here all day, ready to take your hymn requests.


‘Blessed Assurance’

In the absence of any reader requests so far today, I offer a Fanny Crosby classic–Blessed Assurance, sung by choir and congregation at Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee. If everybody sang like this music minister, they’d blow the roof off the building.

And if I posted a different Fanny Crosby hymn every day, and never missed a day… it would take about 20 years to post them all.


‘Blessed Assurance’

I had another hymn lined up for today, but this is the one that I woke up with and that insisted on being played–Fanny Crosby’s Blessed Assurance, sung at Easington Lane IM Church as part of the NBA Big Sing. Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth. Tears in my eyes courtesy of the Holy Spirit.


I didn’t want it to end….
