  • Frances Jane van Alstyne (née Crosby; March 24, 1820 – February 12, 1915), more commonly known as Fanny Crosby, was an American mission worker, poet, lyricist, and composer. A member of the Sixth Avenue Bible Baptist Church in Brooklyn, New York, she wrote many hymns together with her pastor, Robert Lowry. She was one of the most prolific hymnists in history, writing over 8,000 hymns and gospel songs, with over 100 million copies printed, despite being blind from shortly after birth. She is also known for her teaching, and her rescue mission work. By the end of the 19th century, she was "a household name". Known as the "Queen of Gospel Song Writers", and as the "Mother of modern congregational singing in America", with most American hymnals containing her work, as "with the possible exception of Isaac Watts and Charles Wesley, Crosby has generally been represented by the largest number of hymns of any writer of the twentieth century in nonliturgical hymnals". Her gospel songs were "paradigmatic of all revival music", and Ira Sankey attributed the success of the Moody and Sankey evangelical campaigns largely to Crosby's hymns. Some of Crosby's best-known songs include "Pass Me Not, O Gentle Saviour", "Blessed Assurance", "Jesus Is Tenderly Calling You Home", "Praise Him, Praise Him", "Rescue the Perishing", and "To God Be the Glory". Because some publishers were hesitant to have so many hymns by one person in their hymnals, Crosby used nearly 200 different pseudonyms during her career. Crosby wrote over 1,000 secular poems, and had four books of poetry published, as well as two best-selling autobiographies. Additionally, she co-wrote popular secular songs, as well as political and patriotic songs, and at least five cantatas on biblical and patriotic themes, including The Flower Queen, the first secular cantata by an American composer. Crosby was committed to Christian rescue missions, and was known for her public speaking. (en)

  • Frances Jane Crosby (Southeast, 24 maart 1820 - Bridgeport, 12 februari 1915), beter bekend als Fanny Crosby, was een Amerikaans dichteres en schrijfster van liedteksten, vooral bekend om haar protestants-christelijke gezangen. Ze was een van de productiefste gezangschrijvers in de geschiedenis: alhoewel ze kort na haar geboorte blind werd, schreef ze meer dan 8000 gezangen. Tijdens haar leven was Fanny Crosby een van de bekendste vrouwen in de Verenigde Staten. Tot op de dag van vandaag bevat het merendeel van de Amerikaanse liedbundels haar werk. Enkele van haar bekendste liederen zijn: * Blessed assurance, door Meier Salomon Bromet vertaald als Volle verzeek'ring en in deze vertaling opgenomen als no. 197 in de Zangbundel van Johannes de Heer; * Jesus is tenderly calling you home, door Johannes de Heer vertaald als Jezus roept zondaars; * Praise Him, praise Him, door Leger des Heils vertaald als Kroont Hem, kroont Hem; en * To God be the glory, door Johannes de Heer vertaald als Geprezen zij God op Zijn heilige troon. Omdat sommige uitgevers moeite hadden met het in hun liedboeken plaatsen van zoveel gezangen door dezelfde persoon, gebruikte Crosby tijdens haar carrière meer dan 100 verschillende pseudoniemen.
