Blessed Assurance – SCMW College Band
Text by Fanny J. Crosby (1873)
Tune (ASSURANCE) by Phoebe Palmer Knapp (1873)
Arrangement by SCMW College Band
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 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. [Refrain]
What a gift of grace! We’re justified by faith!
Jesus paid the debt. We stand forever saved!
Forever sure in Christ. Forevermore new life.
Forgiven and redeemed. We’re children of the King!
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. [Refrain]
