TSMSS - Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine



I hope you all have had a great week. Today I am sharing one of my top favorite songs. I was looking for a song but I could not think of any other as this one flooded my thoughts. From my past, however means so much more to me now.
"This is my story, this is my song,
PRAISING MY SAVIOR ALL THE DAY LONG"






Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine performed by Third Day

"Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine"
written by Fanny J. Crosby, 1873

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, wash'd in His blood.

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.


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, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest:
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Fill'd with His goodness, lost in His love.

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."



Praising God!

I used to sing/hum this song to my babies when they were little. They are 11 and 7 now. This song brought back sweet memories today. Thank you!
