A Verse by Elizabeth

Returning to the little inn at Ingleton, I found there, upon a sampler, worked in 1824 by Elizabeth Brown, age nine, some lines which I transcribed for preservation.  – Dr. Southey

“Jesus, permit Thy gracious name to stand
As the first effort of an infants hand;
And as her fingers on the sampler move,
Engage her tender heart to seek Thy love;
With Thy dear children may she have a part,
And write Thy name Thyself upon her heart.”

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
