Blessed Assurance Jesus is mine Alan Jackson Country Gospel

Alan Jackson is truly an amazing country singer. He put life into the lyrics of this song entitled Blessed Assurance. This song is an old gospel hymn which conveys the only way to heaven: Jesus is the Way. The only assurance of our citizenship in heaven.
In the Book of Acts we read that about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”
The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. 30He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” (Acts 16: 25-31) Believing is putting our trust in Jesus Christ. We fully surrender to Him all areas of our lives. It’s when we die to our fleshly nature when Jesus lives in us.

Blessed Assurance Lyrics

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

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

Perfect submission, perfect delight
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love
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
Praising my Savior all the day long

Songwriters: Fanny Crosby / Phoebe Knapp
