Discover the lesser-known side of Frances Jane “Fanny” Crosby, the renowned hymn writer, through her enchanting collection of poems. While Fanny’s hymns are widely celebrated, her poetic genius extends far beyond the realm of religious songwriting. In fact, she penned hundreds of other poems, many of which have been tragically lost to history… until now.
Through the republication of Fanny Crosby’s first book, we aim to revive the splendor of her forgotten words. This collection features a diverse array of poems, some of which are religious, while others are inspired by Fanny’s personal experiences at the New York Institute for the Blind. Yet, all of them are exquisitely written and remain inspirational to this day, more than two centuries after Fanny’s birth.
Step into the enchanting world of Fanny Crosby’s poetry, where each word is a testament to her lyrical prowess and poetic sensibility. The interior of the book is a facsimile of the original, complete with the flaws of the 1844 print, making it an authentic and precious artifact of literary history.
