Paperback. Good. Born in England in 1836, her father was an Episcopal Minister, a composer of music, and himself a hymnwriter. After studying in England and Germany, Miss Havergal became a brilliant singer and pianist, and a glittering career in society was open before her. But she considered her talents to be only loans from the Lord, to be used in His service. Miss Havergal longed for a deeper knowledge of god and was brought to see that she could not have the full blessedness of a Christian without a full surrender to Christ. In 1874 she wrote the beautiful hymn: "Take my life, and let it be." This gifted and truly consecrated woman died in Wales at the age of 43. On her tombstone is engraved, as she herself wished, her favourite text: "The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin".
