ON THIS DATE

Ada Ann Fitzgerald Whiddington died, 3/14/1933, at Hendon, England.  She was born in 1855 in England (both exact date & exact location unknown) to Mr & Mrs Robert Fitzgerald.  She married Mark Whiddington & they were blessed with a son, Richard, who reportedly became Cavendish Professor of Physics at Cambridge University.  Ada is thought to have been associated with the Keswick Convention.

This lady is one of many souls who felt inspired to write the desires of their honest souls. One could wish to know more about her, her background, her times but those are left in history’s shadow. What we do have are these words set to music by the famous Canadian turned American A B Simpson (born, PEI, 1843).   

Not I, but Christ, be honored, loved, exalted; Not I, but Christ, be seen, be known, be heard;

Not I, but Christ, in every look and action, Not I, but Christ, in every thought and word.

Refrain

O to be saved from myself, dear Lord, O to be lost in Thee,

O that it might be no more I, But Christ, that lives in me.
