The other day when most were reflecting on the musical talent and death of an extremely gifted artist, Whitney Houston, I thought of another, Frances Havergal.
Know her? (http://www.wholesomewords.org/biography/bhavergal.html). Like Whitney she had a church background. Unlike Whitney she never left the church.
Frances Havergal in another century sang, wrote devotionals, poems and hymns. Hymns like: Take My Life and Let it Be, I Gave My Life for Thee (written when she was 22), and On Our Way Rejoicing.
Frances’ talent like Whitney’s lives on.
