Behind "More Love to Thee"

Do we ever tire of hearing the stories behind the various hymns we hold so dear? I found this article concerning the writing of "More Love to Thee" and thought perhaps a few of you might enjoy reading it. You may also like to bookmark this site for your edification. ~ mr


  1. Thanks for sharing this little bio! Elizabeth Prentiss had such a difficult life, didn't she? What a testimony to God's amazing grace that growing out of her pain & heartache, she could write such edifying pieces.

  2. How God used her! You are so right, Karen. That's one of the reasons I love her so much.

    Some people feel that Stepping Heavenward is sort of an autobiography because there were so many similarities in Katherine's life.
