|Short Name:||J. A. Elliot|
|Full Name:||Elliott, Julia Anne, 1809-1841|
Elliott, Julia Anne, née Marshall, daughter of Mr. John Marshall, of Hallsteads, Ullswater, was married to the Rev. H. V. Elliott (q.v.), in 1833, and died Nov. 3, 1841. Her hymns were contributed to her husband's Psalms & Hymns, 1835, anonymously, but in the Index to the "3rd thousand," 1839, her initials were added. These hymns are eleven in all, and concerning them, Miller has justly said (S. & Songs, p. 482), they
"show a most refined poetical taste, and a special faculty for appreciating and expressing, appropriately, phases of thought and feeling that are beautiful, and that might have escaped common observation."
Of these hymns the best known are, "Hail, thou bright and sacred morn," “On the dewy breath of even,” and "We love Thee, Lord, yet not alone”(q.v.). The rest are:—
1. Father, if that gracious name. Intercession.
2. Great Creator, who this day. Sunday.
3. I would believe; but my weak heart. Len.
4. My God, and can I linger still. Lent.
5. O not when o'er the trembling soul. Lent.
6. O Thou, who didst this rite reveal. Holy Communion.
7. Soon, too soon, the sweet repose. Sunday Evening.
8. Welcome to me the darkest night. Resignation.
