Representative Text

1 When tempted to wander away from the Lord,
I think of the Calvary tree;
Where Jesus once suffered my soul to redeem,
And the heart that was broken for me.

Refrain:
For me, a sinner like me, like me,
His heart was broken for me;
By faith I can see on Calvary,
The heart that was broken for me.

2 When friends are unfaithful I know He is true,
No love is so full and so free;
My eyes fill with tears as I dwell on my sins,
And the heart that was broken for me. [Refrain]

3 Atonement divine He has made by His blood,
For ever my story shall be
Of Jesus this loving Redeemer of mine,
And the heart that was broken for me. [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.
