By Request, ‘Blessed Assurance’

I don’t want anybody thinking I’m going to turn into a DJ or anything like that; but I do mean to keep on posting hymns as requested.

Erlene got fed up with the nooze and asked me to post this instead–a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, Blessed Assurance, sung by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet.

By Request, ‘Draw Me Nearer’

Requested by Erlene–oh, this brings me back to Sunday school, on a sunny spring morning!–Draw Me Nearer, by Fanny Crosby, sung by the Celebration Choir.

Fanny wrote eight or nine thousand hymns, putting her long life to good use.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

A classic hymn from 1890, by Fanny Crosby–one of some eight or nine thousand that she wrote–He Hideth My Soul, sung by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends: no hymn requests awaiting me this morning, so here’s one of my favorites.

Bonus Hymn, ‘He Hideth My Soul’

I’m so tired, and it’s so perishin’ cold outside today–how about a good old-fashioned hymn? Something by Fanny Crosby. Really, I don’t want to post any more nooze today.

All right, here it is: He Hideth My Soul, sung by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Turn to the Lord, and He will turn to us.

By Request, ‘Blessed Assurance’

This hymn request almost slipped through my fingers–well, I’m a bit distracted, hard to concentrate.

Requested by Erlene, Blessed Assurance, a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, sung with gusto by Carroll Roberson.

I pray I can get some of that assurance.

‘Blessed Assurance’

A classic Fanny Crosby hymn, sung by Alan Jackson–not a bad start to the day.

Truly miserable weather this morning. Pray harder. Sing louder.

‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus’

A Fanny Crosby hymn this morning, one of eight or nine thousand that she wrote–‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus, sung by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale.

‘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.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

A classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, published 1890, performed on a beach in Hawaii by students from Fountainview Academy–He Hideth My Soul. 

Look how clean and clear the water is! Just as God made it.

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.
