‘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.

‘All the Way My Savior Leads Me’

If we posted a different Fanny Crosby hymn every day, all year, it would take us over 20 years to post them all!

By Fanny Crosby in 1875, All the Way My Savior Leads Me. Sung a capella by the Mennonite Hour Singers.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

This is one of eight or nine thousand hymns Fanny Crosby wrote: He Hideth My Soul, published in 1890, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.

‘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.

‘Draw Me Nearer’

There being no hymn requests currently unserved (I hope!), let me dip into my store of Sunday school favorites for this one, by Fanny Crosby in 1875–Draw Me Nearer. Organ and piano–the old-fashioned way!–at Rosehill Church. No choir, but we have the lyrics if you want to sing along. Background sets by God the Father.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

Let’s start the day with a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, He Hideth My Soul, performed by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends, in Denton County, Texas. If you don’t have a studio, a living room will do!

By Request, ‘Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross’

Requested by Erlene, a classic Fanny Crosby hymn from 1869, Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross. Sung by the Smucker Family. Background sets by God the Father.

‘To God Be the Glory’

This is one of my favorite hymns–To God Be the Glory, by Fanny Crosby (1875)–but I don’t think I’ve posted this rendition of it before, by the students at Fountainview Academy. Praise the Lord, the God of our salvation.

‘Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross’

We can’t go wrong with a classic Fanny Crosby hymn from the 1860s–Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross, sung by the Smucker Family. Background sets by God the Father.

‘Rescue the Perishing’

You can’t go wrong here–a hymn written by Fanny Crosby (from 1868) and sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale: with God’s gorgeous handiwork for stage sets, and a message from the Gospel.
