Alan Jackson Declares The Faith He Has In God In The Classic Hymn “Blessed Assurance”

by

In 2006, Alan Jackson graced the gospel music scene when he released his first gospel record. Billed as Precious Memories, the album contained recordings of some of Jackson’s favorite hymns – including “Blessed Assurance,” which has been around for centuries.

It was originally written in 1873 by blind hymn writer Fanny Crosby to which her friend, tune composer Phoebe Knapp added music. It was then published in the monthly magazine called Palmer’s Guide to Holiness and Revival Miscellany that same year but had the biggest boost when it appeared in Gospel Songs, No. 5 (1887) by Ira Sankey. Since then, it has been sung extensively in Great Britain and the United States.
