Throughout her life Margaret Clarkson seemingly
experienced every form of suffering one could experience; a broken home,
financial strains, loneliness and isolation, and constant physical pain,
however through it all she continued to place her faith and trust in her
savior. During a life of trials she sensed Godís grace and mercy
and communicated that to others by providing the church with dozens of
hymns testifying to his sovereignty, love, and power. Margaret Clarkson
heard and increasingly understood Godís call upon her life. As she
matured she recognized that she was sent out to minister to others, not
in isolation, but in triumph.
O'er hosts of hell, o'er darkness, death, and sin,
My name to bear, and in that name to conquer-
So send I you, my victory to win.
So send I you-to take to souls in bondage
So send I you-my strength to know in weakness,
So send I you-to bear My cross with patience,
