Fanny Crosby

 

"O what a happy child I am,

although I cannot see!

I am resolved that in this world

Contented I will be.

How many blessings I enjoy that other people don’t.

So, weep and sigh because I’m blind

I cannot and I won’t."

–  Fanny Crosby 1820-1915

(Poem written when Fanny was about 9 years old)
