From the recording Blessed Assurance

Blessed Assurance is one of the most cherished hymns of all time, composed by Fannie Crosby. In this solo piano arrangement, the hymn has the quality of a song without words, with it's block chord patterns moving persistently underneath a cantabile melody line. In addition, the use lush harmonies and frequent key changes create a sense of drama and passion that builds and comes to a satisfying conclusion in the key of A-flat major- coincidentally where the lyrics states 'this is my story'.
