Fagan, Frances. In The Sunny Side, N.Y., 1875, two hymns which have come into use in Great Britain are signed "Fanny Fagan." These are:—
1. Mine be the tongue that always shrinks. Kindness.
2. The still small voice that speaks within. Conscience.
Miss Fagan was a Sunday School Teacher in connection with Dr. W. H. Furness's Church at Philadelphia. Her hymns appeared in her Hymns for the Sunday School of the First Congregational Unitarian Church, Phila., 1866. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
