 “All The Way My Savior Leads Me” was written by one of the most pro­lif­ic songwriters in history.  Fanny Crosby wrote over 8,000 Christian hymns despite the handicapped she struggled with during her life.  An inept doc­tor left Fanny without her eyesight at six weeks of age after a botched procedure.  She said, “ If per­fect earth­ly sight were of­fered me to­mor­row I would not ac­­cept it. I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been dis­tract­ed by the beau­ti­ful and in­ter­est­ing things about me.”  “All The Way My Savior Leads Me” is one of her songwriting masterpieces.

 

     This beloved hymn came to Fanny as a result of a prayer.  Struggling financially, she desperately needed some money.  As her usual custom, Fanny began to pray.  A few minutes later, a gentleman offered her five dollars, the exact amount she needed.  Later recalling the incident, she said, “I have no way of accounting for this except to believe that God put it into the heart of this good man to bring the money.”  The poem she wrote afterward became “All The Way My Savior Leads Me.”  As both a songwriter and a woman of faith, Fanny Crosby serves as an example to all.

 
All The Way My Savior Leads Me

(1) All the way my Savior leads me-

What have I to ask beside?

Can I doubt His tender mercy,

Who through life has been my guide?

Heavenly peace, divinest comfort,

Here by faith in Him to dwell!

For I know, whate'er befall me,

Jesus doeth all things well;

For I know, whate'er befall me,

Jesus doeth all things well.

 

(2) All the way my Savior leads me-

Cheers each winding path I tread,

Gives me grace for every trial,

Feeds me with the living bread.

Though my weary steps may falter

And my soul a-thirst may be,

Gushing from the Rock before me,

Lo! a spring of joy I see;

Gushing from the Rock before me,

Lo! a spring of joy I see.

 

(2) All the way my Savior leads me-

O the fullness of His love!

Perfect rest to me is promised

In my Father's house above.

When my spirit, clothed immortal,

Wings its flight to realms of day,

This my song through endless ages:

Jesus led me all the day;

This my song through endless ages:

Jesus led me all the way.

 

.

     When she died in 1913, Fanny Crosby had written hymns in a large variety of different pen names. On her tomb­stone lies a line from one of her many hymns “Bless­ed as­sur­ance, Jesus is mine. Oh, what a fore­taste of glory divine.”   “All The Way My Savior Leads Me” is one of the most beloved of her songwriting work.
