He laid down His life for His sheep

Representative Text

He laid down His life for His sheep,
He laid down His life for His sheep;
This Shepherd so kind, had me in His mind,
When He laid down His life for His sheep.

Orphaned at an early age, Clarke ran away from the orphanage and worked at sea for almost 10 years. He eventually moved to London, then to America. He attended the Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, Illinois, then went into composing, music publishing, and evangelism. He served as song leader for Harry vom Bruch and Billy Sunday, being so impressed by Sunday that he established the Billy Sunday Memorial Chapel in Sioux City, Iowa (where he served as pastor until 1945). Clarke also worked in the evangelism field in Garards Fort, Pennsylvania, and South Milford, Indiana. © The Cyber Hymnal™. Used by permission. (www.hymntime.com) Go to person page >
