Overview

For most, the hymns of Fanny Crosby are as familiar and sweet as the memories of a summer prayer meeting with evening breezes rustling through the sanctuary. The simple mention of one of her hymn titles brings rushing back the song in all its entirety, lyrics, music and all. And suddenly, surprisingly, the songs find voice, for her songs demand to be sung!

Fanny J. Crosby can be ranked among the greatest Christian hymn writers of all time. She was the author of over 8,000 hymns, hymns that remain today at the very heart of Christian worship around the world. Though blind since infancy, Fanny Crosby overcame great prejudice to become a poet and teacher, much beloved and respected. Then she encountered God at a revival meeting, and her life was transformed from a life of writing, teaching, and public speaking into a life devoted to proclaiming the Gospel through music, bringing the Good News to those who couldn't bear preaching, but could be touched by song.

Here is her story, told in her own words, a story told without bitterness or regret, but like her lyrics, a reflection of her experience with God-full of joy and enthusiasm, wonder and exuberance. A life lived fully and completely for God.
