Tutorials and Resources for Blessed Assurance by Cain and David Leonard

Blessed Assurance by Cain and David Leonard is a southern gospel take on the classic hymn originally written by Fanny Crosby and Phoebe Knapp.

The newly added bridge adds a celebratory note to this already beautifully written song.

Listen through the song:

Setlist Position

The slow nature of Blessed Assurance lends itself to the middle to middle end of the set. Because the bridge adds energy, it's a great way to transition from a down tempo section to a higher intensity section.

Blessed Assurance Lyrics

Oh, blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation the purchase of God
Born of His spirit and washed in His blood

This is my story, this is my song
I’m praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, oh, this is my song
‘Cause I’m praising my Savior all the day long

Perfect submission now, all is at rest
‘Cause I in my Savior, oh, I am happy and blessed
And I’m watching and waiting and I’m looking above
‘Cause I’m filled with His goodness and I’m washed in His blood

This is my story
I’ll testify that God is good
All the time He saw me
And heard my cry, now, I am His
