By Request, ‘Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior’

Requested by Erlene, a Fanny Crosby hymn: Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior, sung by the Joslin Grove Choral Society.

If we posted every single day a hymn written by Fanny Crosby, a different hymn each day… it would still take some 20 years to post them all!

‘To God Be the Glory’

The hymn I loaded last night for this morning mysteriously vanished, but I reckon I can’t go wrong with this: To God Be the Glory, one of Fanny Crosby’s 8,000 hymns, sung by the Apostolic Christian Mens Group. Mountains and valleys by God the Father, maker of Heaven and Earth.


‘He Hideth My Soul’

A classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, sung by the choir and congregation at The Church of God–He Hideth My Soul. With lyrics so you can sing along. This is a hymn that often comes to me.

Bonus Hymn, ‘Draw Me Nearer’

I always post any hymn that really asserts itself in my mind, even if I don’t know why it should. This morning that hymn was Draw Me Nearer–a Fanny Crosby classic from 1875. I had a hard time finding a video that was simple and straightforward: so I’ve got this for you, from some little church somewhere. Thank you, whoever you are–that was the way I wanted to hear it.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

This hymn spends a lot of time with me. I once calculated that if I posted every day a different hymn by Fanny Crosby, it would take me 20 years to post them all.

This is He Hideth My Soul, by Fanny Crosby, sung by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends in Denton County, Texas.

Bonus Hymn, ‘To God Be the Glory’

After perusing more nooze than is good for me, I need to lift up mine eyes unto the hills and rinse out my brain. So I hope you don’t mind another hymn

Why this one? I don’t know. It’s been on my mind all day, and I think that means I ought to post it.

To God Be the Glory, by Fanny Crosby: sung by the Apostolic Christian Men’s Group. Background sets by God the Father.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

If you can fit eight people into your living room, they might as well sing.

Fanny Crosby wrote He Hideth My Soul in 1890, and today it still works to praise the Lord our God. Sung by Nathan and Lyle, with family and friends, in Denton County, Texas.

‘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.

One More Time, ‘He Hideth My Soul’

I hope nobody minds me posting this again–He Hideth My Soul, a classic Fanny Crosby hymn, here sung by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends in Denton County, Texas. I like to go with the first hymn that pops into my head–except, of course, when one of you makes a hymn request. You ask for it, I’ll post it!
