Only Remembered by What We Have Done

Words by Horatius Bonar Music by Ira D. Sankey

"Fading away like the stars of the morning,
Losing their light in the glorious sun.

Dr. Horatius Bonar, of Edinburgh, wrote the words of this hymn, which I set to music in 1891. I sang it as a solo in the Tabernacle in London at the funeral of my friend, C. H. Spurgeon, the great London preacher.
