On this date, August 3, 1897, Emily Elizabeth Steele Elliott died in London England. Elliott was a hymn writer and her best known hymn became “Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne.”
Thou didst leave Thy throne and Thy kingly crown,
When Thou camest to earth for me;
But in Bethlehem’s home was there found no room
For Thy holy nativity.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.
