Item Description...
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.

Fanny Crosby entered what was then known as the New York Institution for the Blind at the age of fifteen and afterward taught English and history (1847-58).

As a pupil and as a teacher, Fanny spent 35 years at the school. She was often asked to entertain visitors with her poems, and she frequently met with presidents, generals and other dignitaries. She was asked to play at President Grant's funeral. Her first book of poems, published in 1844, was called The Blind Girl and Other Poems.

After leaving the school, she dedicated her life to serving the poorest and the neediest. Supporting herself by her writing, she quickly gained fame for her hymns. Her usual fee was a mere two dollars which frequently went to her work with the poor. Her mission work is legendary as is her devotion to serving others above herself.

Long unavailable, this is the story (originally published in 1906 as Memories of Eighty Years) of a remarkable life, told by Miss Crosby herself.

More About Fanny J. Crosby & Fanny J. ÊCrosby

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Fanny Crosby, a famous blind hymn writer, was an American poet, lyricist, composer, and mission worker. What Fanny lacked in physical vision she made up for in mental alertness and spiritual insight. Her heart could see what her eyes did not. Passion, versatility, and compassion for mankind are an integral part of her writings. She stored lovely visions of the fleeting clouds, the star-studded heavens, and glorious sunsets, as depicted in the word pictures she lovingly penned.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fanny's bio & other books/etc  Jan 11, 2007
As it was not me who received the books and cd of Fanny Crosby, I am unforuneately unable to give them a rating. My mother was the person that recieved the books and cd of Fanny, and to my knowlege they have helped her with what she originally needed them for and is pleased with them. The rating I have given you on her behalf is only an estimate as I don't know what she would put herself. Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your business.
