Representative Text

1 O love divine! He tho't of me
When on the cross of Calvary:
The sin that bowed His head so low,
Should make my tears forever flow.

O love divine! how can it be
He tho't of you, He tho't of me?
Upon the cross of Calvary
My blessed Savior tho't of me!

2 He tho't of me 'mid pain and scorn,
When pierced His brow with crown of thorns;
Upon His sinless soul was laid
The ransom price, so freely paid. [Chorus]

3 He tho't of me, the Son of God
When thro' the vale of death he trod;
Tho' reigning now in heav'n is He,
I know my Savior thinks of me. [Chorus]

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.
