Fannie Crosby

Fannie Crosby was a famous Hymn Writer.

In fact she wrote so many that she often used a pseudonym for her name so the hymnal wouldn't be 'wall to wall' hymns by her.

You have probably noticed that we often use Hymns by Fannie Crosby during our Sunday Hymn Music selections (as we will tomorrow, for example).

The picture here shows her wearing dark glasses.  Why?

Because she was blind from shortly after birth.
