Fanny Crosby (1820-1915), prolific writer of gospel songs and hymns like "To God Be The Glory" and "Blessed Assurance," was blind.
When asked by a preacher if she was upset that she was never able to see. She said, "No."
When asked, "Why?"
She replied, "Because when I get to heaven, the first face that will ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior."
