Although I can not see!
I am resolved that in this world,
Contented I will be.

The above poem was written by an 8 year old girl back in 1828. Her name was Fanny Crosby. This may have been her very first poem. She was blinded by an eye infection at six weeks old, and her father died when she was one year old. Her blindness did not hinder her attitude, or her faith in Christ.
