Sweetness on Sunday ~ Blessed Assurance

 Blessed Assurance | Frances 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.

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.

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.

Happy Sunday dear friends!

Lovely painting of the girl playing the piano and the dog howling along! Blessed assurance is a truly beautiful song. I used to sing it as a solo.

I love the image. Songs Without Words is still used. I remember when my daughter was really little the professor used it to show her how to make something musical. She also has a kitty and a toy poodle.

Oh, how sweet! Toy poodles are so adorable and who can resist a kitty? Thank you so much for visiting today and I so appreciate you leaving me a sweet comment! Blessings, Kelly-Anne
