Also, they patched a different approach to every gospel. Apart from that, their music videos are one of a kind.

Take the World, But Give Me Jesus…

Frances Jane Crosby aka Fanny Crosby was the author of “Take the World, But Give Me Jesus.” Meanwhile, John R. Sweney arranged the music of the hymn.

The Story Behind the Hymn…

Back in time, Fanny was talking to one of her neighbors, who bitterly complained  of his poverty. If I had wealth, I would be able to do just what I wish to do and I would be able to make an appearance in the world. Fanny replied,

“Well, take the world, but give me Jesus. “

She was then inspired by her own words to write a hymn with that title.
