BLESSED ASSURANCE

Fanny J. Crosby, Phoebe P. Knapp

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

 

* This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Saviour all the day long

This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Saviour 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

(back to *)

 

Perfect submission, all is at rest

I in my Saviour am happy and blest

Watching and waiting, looking above

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love

(back to *)
