From the time of unaccompanied singing on the Mount of Olives to modern day ‘worship bands’ singing has been important to Christian worship. The hymns of Frances have become part of this tradition. It is possible to re-dedicate our lives with ‘Take my life and let it be, consecrated Lord to Thee”, march triumphantly with ‘Who is on the Lord’s side, who will face the foe?’ or rest in God with ‘Like a river glorious. flows God’s perfect peace’.
Frances was the daughter of a vicar in Worcestershire, but died at a prematurely young age in South Wales.
