Blessed Assurance Hymn Story and Lyrics

Blessed Assurance is at the top of millions of Christians top ten hymns of all time. It is such a powerful expression of our love for the LORD.

The words of this hymn were written by the blind singer Fanny Crosby after listening to a melody composed by Phoebe in 1873.

It is based on Hebrews 10:22 " Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water." (KJV)

How else can we respond to this assurance but by saying Here I Am Lord

Below are the lyrics of this beautiful hymn.

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

Refrain:
This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight!
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

(Refrain)

Perfect submission, all is at rest!
I in my Savior am happy and blessed,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
(Refrain)
