Fanny J Crosby

The life of the beloved hymn writer told in her own words. Frances Jane Crosby (1820?1915), usually known as Fanny Crosby, was an American lyricist best known for her Protestant Christian hymns. She was one of the most prolific hymnists in history, writing over 8,000 hymns, despite being blind from shortly after birth. Also known for her preaching and speaking, during her lifetime Fanny Crosby was one of the best known women in the United States. ^^ To this day the vast majority of American hymnals contain her work. Some of her best known songs include ?Blessed Assurance,? ?Jesus Is Tenderly Calling You Home,? ?Praise Him, Praise Him,? and ?To God Be the Glory.? Since some publishers were hesitant to have so many hymns by one person in their hymnals, Crosby used nearly 100 different pseudonyms during her career. Long unavailable, this is the story (originally published in 1906 as Memories of Eighty Years) of a remarkable life, told by Miss Crosby herself.^
