Blessed Assurance

“Que Segurança”

Letra: Fanny Jane Crosby, 1873. My friend, Mrs. Joseph F. Knapp, composed a melody and played it over to me two or three times on the piano. She then asked what it said. I replied, Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! This hymn was sung in the Academy Award winning movies Places in the Heart (1984) & Trip to Bountiful (1985). Based on the number of hymnals in which it appears (over 850), this song is Fanny’s most popular work.

Though blinded by an incompetent doctor at six weeks of age, she wrote over 8,000 hymns. About her blindness, she said: “It seemed intended by the blessed providence of God that I should be blind all my life, and I thank him for the dispensation. If perfect earthly sight were offered me tomorrow I would not accept it. I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me”.

In her lifetime, Fanny Crosby was one of the best known women in the United States. To this day, the vast majority of American hymnals contain her work. When she died, her tombstone carried the words, “Aunt Fanny” and “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine.

Blessed Assurance

Blessèd assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

Refrão
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.

Refrão

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.

Refrão

Anseio Trabalhar Por Meu SenhorConfia no Senhor

[ See in Cyberhymnal, and see also in Dann’s Home Page: by Daniel Borges, by George Benjamim Nind and in Inglês ]

Não se afastem de ti a benignidade e a fidelidade; ata-as ao teu pescoço, escreve-as na tábua do teu coração; assim acharás favor e bom entendimento à vista de Deus e dos homens. Confia no Senhor de todo o teu coração, e não te estribes no teu próprio entendimento. Reconhece-o em todos os teus caminhos, e ele endireitará as tuas veredas. Não sejas sábio a teus próprios olhos; teme ao Senhor e aparta-te do mal.

Provérbios 3:3-7
