Sarah F. Adams

Nearer My God to Thee

Sarah Fuller Flower Adams ( 1805-1848 )

Born: February 22, 1805, Harlow, Essex, England.

Daughter of journalist and politician Benjamin Flower, she married William Bridges Adams in 1834. She had hoped to be an actress, but God had other plans for her. Her stage career was cut short by poor health (though she did get to play Lady Macbeth), so she turned to writing. Her works include many magazine articles; a poem about early Christian martyrs called Vivia Perpetua (1841); The Flock at the Fountain (1845), a children's catechism; and 13 entries in Hymns and Anthems, published in 1841 by minister William Johnson Fox. Adams attended Fox's South Place Unitarian Church, Finsbury, London.

Died: 14 August, 1848, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Middlesex, England
