Representative Text

1 Take my moments, blessed Jesus;
Keep them for me ev’ry day,
Till they grow with life and beauty;
Fill them with Thy praise alway.

Take my moments, keep them ever,
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Use them, make each one a blessing
Garnered for eternity.

2 Keep them for Thy use, dear Saviour,
As they pass so swiftly by;
Let them shine thro’ years of service
With a glory from on high. [Refrain]

3 Just the moments, but they may be
Touched with God’s electric love,
Till they bear some flaming message
From the mercy-seat above. [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.
