This is My Song

Blessed Assurance
Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchased 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

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.

Blessed Assurance has been a favorite hymn in our house for years. I pray this weekend you are praising your Savior all day long. I pray you are living with visions of rapture. And I pray you are happy and blest in your Savior.

I leave you with a video my husband made of Lauren singing Blessed Assurance for my birthday before she turned 3. (She will be 9 next week. Where do the years go?) I still hear echos of her sweet voice singing about her Jesus when I hear this song. May it bless you too.

You can watch the video here

Happy Easter!

    1. When she was a baby, I lamented to my Bible study that our church doesn’t really sing hymns like I grew up with. One of the ladies told me to sing them with her. How had I not thought of that? 🙂 there is nothing like a hymn!
