This is a wonderful song to teach your children. Fanny Crosby wrote it around 1880 and her love for the Savior comes through. Sing it with your children, helping them to learn the words. Then, use it to teach them of Jesus. Let us help you do that at our Speakables hymn activity page.
This would be great for your homeschool Bible time!
