I was listening to the local Christian radio station the other day when this familiar hymn came on. I was in the midst of preparing a presentation on parenting (for our upcoming Defending the Faith conference) and thought that the words of this song are a very appropriate conclusion for my presentation. I want to teach my daughter the truth of God’s Word so that this will be her story and song and she will praise the Savior all the days of her life.
Blessed Assurance By Fanny J. Crosby
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! Oh, 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.
Perfect submission, all is at rest, I in my Savior am happy and blest, Watching and waiting, looking above, Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
