Frances was an English religious poet and hymn writer. She was affectionately called ‘Fannie’ by her family and friends. She was the youngest of 6 children. Her father, William Havergal, was an Anglican clergyman.
Her hymns were published either during her life time or after she had died of peritonitis at the young age of 42 .
The glow of her testimony continues to reach Christian hearts everywhere. The glory and peace of the exchanged life is beautifully stated in her triumphant hymns .
