Monthly with Hymn, November

 

Written by Fanny Crosby around 1873, this gem of a hymn did not become popular in America until Cliff Barrows, music director for Billy Graham crusades, introduced it in the 1950s. Before this, Ira Sankey published it in England in his book Sacred Songs & Solos.

Fanny Crosby was an American poet and hymn writer. She wrote thousands of hymns during her lifetime despite being blind since infancy.
