Anointed Singer Performs Stirring Cover Of ‘He Hideth My Soul’

Maranatha Volunteers International has shared a video of Wintley Phipps singing a beautiful rendition of ‘He Hideth My Soul.’

The song was composed by Fanny Crosby who was blinded at the age of six due to a surgical mishap, but she could see through the eyes of the spirit. She worked as a teacher at a blind school, and wrote and published many beautiful hymns, which are still sung today.

A wonderful saviour is Jesus my Lord
A wonderful Saviour to me
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
Where rivers of pleasure I see

She said she believed that God had intended for her to be blind her whole life, and would have not accepted the gift of perfect eyesight if offered to her, because she said she may not have sung hymns to the praise of God as she would have been distracted by the worldly things around her.

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
That shadows a dry, thirsty land
He hideth my life in the depths of his love
And covers me there with his hand
And covers me there with his hand

The heartwarming story behind the writer if this beautiful hymn reminds us of the calm assurance that comes to us when we hide ourselves in the rock of our salvation.

“Behold, there is a place by Me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while My glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a cleft of the rock, and will cover thee with My hand while I pass by.”(Exodus 33:21,22)

Verse of the Day

But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” — Luke 1:30-33 (NIV)
