Originally from Ohio, Henry was an early leader in the Holiness Movement near Boyertown, Pennsylvania. In 1889 he, answered a call to hold revival meetings in eastern Pennsylvania. Denominational leaders had received requests from congregations there, but had no one to send. Though Henry was only 22 years old, he proved a very effective organizer. He toured eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey for several months each year till 1895. He became a very active evangelist and song writer, holding meetings in every American state and in Britain. --www.hymntime.com/tch… Go to person page >

Let the Fire Fall on Me

Lord, I would be wholly Thine,
I would do Thy will divine,
From the world and sin and self I would be free;
On the altar now I lie,
And with all my heart I cry,
Let the holy fire from heaven fall on me.
