Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)


Like gen­tle dew the bless­ings fall
From God whose love in­spires our song;
Our time, our tal­ents and our all,
From Him re­ceived, to Him be­long.


Then let us of­fer to His name
The will­ing sac­ri­fice of praise;
And may our grate­ful lips pro­claim
His good­ness in the notes we raise!

On Je­sus all our sins were laid;
He freely shed His pre­cious blood,
And thus our ad­vo­cate was made,
That He might bring us near to God.


To save from death our guil­ty race,
He bore the cross, en­dured the pain;
O won­drous rich­es of His grace!
In Him we die to live again.
