On this date, March 30, 1942, Anne S. Murphy died. She was born in East Liverpool Ohio which is only fifteen minutes from where I grew up in Hookstown Pennsylvania.
She is known as the author of the wonderful song, “Constantly Abiding.”
There’s a peace in my heart that the world never gave,
A peace it cannot take away;
Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,
I’ve a peace that has come here to stay!
Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
“I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine.
