Little unknown history/facts about “Blessed Assurance”
This hymn was composed in 1873. Phoebe Knapp was a close friend of Fanny Crosby. Phoebe lived in a luxurious mansion, whilst Fanny lived in the Manhattan slums and worked in rescue missions.
Fanny was a frequent visitor to Phoebe. One day in 1873, Phoebe played a tune on the piano whilst Fanny listened.
In Fanny’s own words, “My friend, Mrs. Joseph F. Knapp, composed a melody and played it over to me two or three times on the piano.
She then asked what it said. I replied, ‘Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!’”. Notice the many references to sight in this hymn, even though Fanny was blind.
Fanny may have been physically blind, but she had spiritual eyes that were constantly fixed on the Saviour. Amen!
Lyrics of “Blessed Assurance”
- Blessed assurance, Jesus is
mine; Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of
Born of His Spirit, washed in His
REF: This is my story, this is my
Praising my Savior all the day
This is my story, this is my
Praising my Savior all the day long.
2 Perfect submission, perfect
Visions of rapture now burst on
Angels descending, bring from
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
3 Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and
Watching and waiting, looking
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
