HISTORY It Is Well With My Soul: The Story Behind the Hymn

Fanny Crosby (1820-1915) - listen to her hymn "Blessed Assurance" on the Cyber Hymnal

"Bringing In the Sheaves" is a popular American Gospel song used almost exclusively by Protestant Christians (though the content is not specifically Protestant in nature). The lyrics were written in 1874 by Knowles Shaw, who was inspired by Psalm 126:6, "He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Shaw also wrote music for these words, but they are now usually set to a tune by George Minor, written in 1880.
