Fanny Crosby became the “Queen of the Hymn Writers” in the 1800s; her songs are still beloved to this day. But why did some find her first breakthrough hymn controversial?

In this episode, we explore the origin of Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior as Fanny puts herself in the place of the suffering and disregarded. She understood that for some who experience deep rejection, it takes great faith to realize that Christ is the One who would never pass anyone by. Though a bit misunderstood at first, this hymn endures as one of the greatest, most touching songs in the history of Christian music. A performance by Gospel trio Faith’s Call is featured.
