Inspiring Lyrics--"Blessed Assurance"
Puppyfoot on 08/25/2008
|"Blessed Assurance" was written by two women. In 1873, Mrs. Phoebe Knapp wrote the music, then played it for her friend, Miss Fanny J. Crosby. She asked her what the tune said to Miss Crosby, who answered with what became the first line of the hymn--"Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine." Miss Crosby, who was blind, then wrote the rest of the lyrics, and their song became a popular Christian hymn. Both women wrote many other songs. |
This Kerblunk includes questions from three verses of this hymn.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: I realize that many hymns have different versions of lyrics because they have been revised over the years. If you feel that any of the "wrong" answers on this quiz are actually right and can send me information verifying this, I will gladly consider changing the answers. Thanks for your help.
