“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge,

God gave them over to a reprobate mind,

to do those things which are not convenient;”

A L Vess Quote

“Those who believe in the “unknown tongue” certainly have no right

to be called “Pentecostal,” for the marvel and miracle of Pentecost

was that every man heard them speak in his own language.”

– A L Vess, from his booklet Bible on Tongues

God, the Master of all master artists, combines the right color of hair

with the right color complexion, & the right eyes.

You nor I (puny creatures that we are) cannot repeat, CANNOT improve on these.

Please – respect the Artist enough to leave them alone.

‘Twas a summer shower

Doing all within its power

To make you think it would last an hour;    

– – – But it won’t.

Eliza E Hewitt was born 6/28/1851, at Philadelphia, PA.  She was born the second child to James Stratton Hewitt, a sea captain, & Zeruiah Edmunds Hewitt.  She was a cousin to the poet Edgar Page Stites & a personal friend with Fanny Crosby.

She was a public school teacher who developed serious spinal trouble possibly due to a undisciplined boy hitting her in the back with a slate.  This illness/disease forced her to quit teaching & in fact confined her to her bed.  But from there she wrote Sunday school material.  And she became the Sunday School superintendent for the Northern Home for Friendless Children and later at served in the same position in a Presbyterian Church.  She died on 4/24/1920.

Hewitt is remembered today as the author of “There Is Sunshine in My Soul Today” “Stepping in the Light” “Will There Be Any Stars?” “’More About Jesus I Would Know” “Give Me Thy Heart” and “When We All Get to Heaven” though she penned some seventeen hundred (that is right 1700) other songs.

My faith has found a resting place, Not in device or creed;

I trust the ever living One, His wounds for me shall plead.


I need no other argument, I need no other plea,

It is enough that Jesus died, And that He died for me.
