Catching Songs in First Creation

I injured my back a week ago and it left me struggling to walk. The condition became worse and I was ready to seek help. Then yesterday afternoon, Hillary and I were wondering about the origin of an old hymn written by Fanny Crosby (1820–1915). She wrote over 8,000 hymns; a stunning amount of creative…
