Fanny J. Crosby



Fanny J. Crosby is one of the most beloved and well-known of the hymn writers. Most hymn books throughout Christendom include at least one of her songs, be it “Blessed Assurance,” “Pass Me Not,” “Rescue the Perishing,” or one of hundreds more. In “Memories of Eighty Years” she shares anecdotes of her formative years, of inspiration for her poetry, of meeting other writers, statesmen, and people who found hope and learned to know the Savior through her songs. Blind from the age of six months, she never let her handicap keep her from learning or sharing her love for her Savior.
