“Blessed Assurance” is the best-known hymn by Fanny Crosby, who was born in 1820 in southeastern New York. Her parents mistakenly trusted a false physician to treat an illness in her infancy, so Fanny grew up blind. No one knows how many hymns she wrote. She was so prolific that hymnal publishers would not print all her hymns under her name. Resorting to using 100 pseudonyms, Fanny published up to 8,000 hymns in her lifetime. Some would say, due to her parents’ misplaced trust, Fanny grew up in darkness. Others hear her music and know Fanny Crosby lived very close to Light.
