Even Me

Words by Mrs. Elizabeth Codner Music by William B. Bradbury

"Lord, I hear of showers of blessing - Thou art scattering full and free."




A gentleman in England sends this incident: A poor woman, in a dark village, attended a High Church mission, where the good Gospel hymn, ' Even Me' was sung from a printed leaflet. A few days afterward the old woman became seriously ill, and soon she died. But she seemed to have taken in all the Gospel through this hymn, and to the last repeated with reverence and joy ' Even me, even me,' not remembering one word of the sermon that she heard at the mission. This was in 1877. Soon after we had an evangelistic meeting in the same village, in a barn three hundred years old, where this hymn was sung with great effect."
