Representative Text

1 For the honor of the King press forward,
Ever ready for His least command;
Rouse to duty! swift the days are flying,
Showing others on which side you stand.

For the honor of the King faithful prove in ev’rything,
Speed the work He bids you do;
For the honor of the King other lives rejoicing bring;
He depends on you,
He depends on you.

2 For the honor of the King be loyal,
As you mingle with the busy throng;
Life is not a time of ease, but conflict;
Claim His promise till your heart grows strong. [Refrain]

3 For the honor of the King live nobly,
Cast aside each sin whate’er it be;
While His precious name is in your keeping,
Let the world in you His likeness see. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
