Composer. A native of Sparta, Virginia, he was an early songwriter and publisher of popular gospel music, including Evangelical hymns and church music. Also a noted music scholar, he taught at the Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia, for many years. With well over 5000 songs to his writing credit, he is probably best remembered for his composition, "Jesus Paid It All." Among Beazley's other works are, "I Choose Jesus", "The Great Redeemer", "Reapers Are Needed", "Crossing The Bar", "In the Hollow Of His Hand", and "The Work Must Go On." He died from complications of the disease tuberculosis at the Chicago Municipal Sanitarium. He was posthumously inducted into the Gospel Music Hall Of Fame in 1992.
