Representative Text

1 You can set my name down for my blessed Lord and King,
His redeeming love shines in my heart;
Earthly pleasures no more shall allure me back again,
From my Saviour I will ne’er depart.

You can set my name down, set my name down
As a sinner saved by grace divine,
You can set my name down, set my name down,
Let me call this blessed Saviour mine.

2 You can set my name down, tho’ unworthy of His love,
He has turned my dark night into day;
With His wonderful peace, satisfied my longing heart,
Rolled the burden of my guilt away. [Refrain]

3 You can set my name down, all is changed within my soul,
Thor’ my tears His dear face I can see;
He has driven away ev’ry gloomy doubt and fear,
And in Him my constant joy shall be. [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.
