*Hymn of Praise         "Blessed Assurance"          by Fanny Crosby
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

On which the prince of glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride
