She was physically blinded at a young age, but Fanny Crosby developed a spiritual vision like few others. Over the past century, untold numbers have sung her heartfelt hymns of praise to God, and her words still bless believers today.
Fanny Crosby never complained about the hardships of life; she simply looked to Jesus. Her attitude is best summed up by a conversation she had with a minister.
"Do you know," she said, "that if at birth I have been able to make one petition, it would have been that I should be born blind?" "Why?" asked the minister in surprize. "Because when I get to heaven," she responded, "the first face that should ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior!"
