Representative Text

1 O wondrous love so full and free,
That Christ my Lord bestows on me;
The things of earth soon fade away,
The joys He sends will ne’er decay.

O love of God divinely sweet,
Bright ray of light from heaven’s throne;
O love of God divinely sweet,
Sealing my heart to Him alone.

2 So sweet and true thro’ all the years,
It soothes my woes and calms my fears,
And softly falls like even dew,
To heal my soul and cleanse anew. [Chorus]

3 Full ransom paid for ev’ry sin,
Stooping below lost ones to win;
Love whispers songs e’en thro’ the night,
My crown of life, my Fount of Light. [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.
