Stories and hymns of Frances Alexander and Joseph Scriven
The Christian Churh has given the world many great hymns which are still sung with enthusiasm, gratitude and faith. Many of these favorites are sung again and again in tiny gospel halls, in churches of all denominations and in great cathedrals. Their uplifting melodies, memorable poetry and timeless messages have truly seeped into the heart and soul of the saints for generations.
Friends in Jesus tells the story behind two classic hymns written by Irish hymn writers and gives insight into what makes them so precious to the church: "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" and "There's a Green Hill Far Away."
