    Hi, I would like to know the story behind the song "Live out thy life within me", that why did she writte it? What was the motive if you do have some information about this. Thank you.

      Hi, Brother/sister, I do not know. I did try to look it up, but could not find it. The date that it was actually written is not even available. So information about this hymn seems to be unknown for the most part. However, I may try to look into it and other hymns some more. I am glad you brought it up. It is a wonderful piece. Thanks. Your sister in Christ, Michelle

    Hi - I wonder if you might pass this listing onto any who might be interested in Havergal's works. This is a rare 1st edition copy of Frances Ridley Havergal's "Under the Surface", 1834. It is in extraordinarily pristine shape. Thanks for your help. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Under-Surface-Frances-Ridley-Havergal-1834-J-Nisbet-Co-/180772247730?pt=Antiquarian_Collectible&hash=item2a16dd98b2 Liz

Verse of the Day

[Take Up the Cross and Follow Him] Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. — Luke 9:23-24 (NKJV)
