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.
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.
We have to thank Janet for requesting this lively hymn–Standing on the Promises, gloriously performed by the Harpet Gospel Quartet. Published in 1886 and still going strong!
How do we get out of the dumpster fire that’s the nooze today?
With a hymn!
We thank Erlene for asking for this–Blessed Assurance, by Fanny Crosby, sung by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet with background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.
When things get really bad… sing louder!
Susan asked for this, and it’s one of my favorities, too: Blessed Assurance, by Fanny Crosby–Christians have been loving it since 1873. This rendition is by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet, with God’s own handiwork for the background. As I write this, we’re having a foggy morning here–just like in the picture of fog blanketing a valley. As long as you’re not driving, you can enjoy the fog sometimes.
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.
I was so impressed by the way they sang Blessed Assurance, I looked for more hymns by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet and found this–I Love to Tell the Story, an old Sunday school favorite. Kate Hankey wrote it in 1866. Background sets by the hand of God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.
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.
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.
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!
