Bluegrass Family Band Sings 'Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior'

A classic hymn gets a bluegrass makeover as The Petersens performs ‘Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior.’


This special hymn is a 19th-century American song written by Fanny Crosby in 1868, set to music by William H. Doane in 1870. Decades later, it still remains a beloved favorite by hearts all around the world.

“Pass me not, O gentle Savior
Hear my humble cry
While on others Thou art calling
Do not pass me by”

The Petersens are a family band from Branson, Missouri. This bluegrass ensemble has traveled all around the world sharing their musical talents, but you can normally find them at home in Branson.

For ten seasons, The Petersens have performed at the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex.

Today, they are putting their own spin on the classic hymn ‘Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior.’ Just listen as the entire family belts out these iconic words of worship to our King.

“Savior, Savior
Hear my humble cry
While on others Thou art calling
Do not pass me by”

These inspiring words remind us that God is always there. He hears our cries and He answers our prayers, in His own, divine timing.

Let the Lord lead the way and He will guide us on the path to righteousness.

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
