Baby Frances—or Fanny, as everyone called her—was only six weeks old when she became blind. “What a pity you can’t see,” people often said. “The first thing my eyes will ever see will be the face of Jesus in heaven,” she’d reply. And this filled her with joy.
Not only was Fanny a happy girl, always looking for reasons to be thankful, she was also blessed with extraordinary musical ability.
Follow her inspirational story to discover how she wrote some of the world’s most famous hymns, such as To God Be the Glory and Blessed Assurance.
