Fanny Crosby was one of the greatest and most prolific hymn writers of all time. Her songs are still favorite staples of hymn books across numerous denominations.
Crosby, who was blind from a young age, wrote over 9,000 hymns. In fact, she wrote so many hymns that she would often use pen names so that her name wouldn’t be seen so many times throughout each hymnal.
Even though there are hymn books filled with her songs, a treasure trove of 2,000 previously unreleased hymns are located in a vault at Wheaton College. In honor of the centennial anniversary of Crosby’s death, some of these songs have now been released.
For this lyric video, Paul Baloche performs one of the newly released songs called “Come to the Water” from the album “Blessed Assurance…The New Hymns of Fanny Crosby.”
These beautiful songs will be a blessing to a new generation of Christians.
