From last night’s telecast of the Kennedy Center Honors on CBS: the acclaimed gospel singer CeCe Winans pays tribute to honoree, actress Cicely Tyson, with a goosebump-inducing rendition of the hymn “Blessed Assurance.” It’s something to see and hear.
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! O what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God, Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood. Refrain:This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long.
vs.2 Perfect submission, perfect delight! Visions of rapture now burst on my sight; Angels descending bring from above Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
