    Hymns and PoemsHymns and Poems by A.L.O.E (Charlotte Maria Tucker)

    ALOE wrote hymns for specific groups of people, specific occupations, and some longer poems on spiritual subjects. From the preface: “To admit rhymes for ragged children, needlewomen, and paupers into a book of sacred song, may—in the opinion of some critics—deprive it of all claim to the name of poetry. Yet I venture to hope that those who love to labor in God’s vineyard, will not be sorry to bear to their poorer brethren verses intended to meet their peculiar trials, and cheer them under their peculiar sorrows; while the subjects of many of the hymns are such as are of equal interest to the prince as to the peasant.” These hymns are written as poetry.

    Elizabeth Prentiss wrote 122 poems that “depict some of the deepest experiences of her Christian life . . . they are her tears of joy or of sorrow, her cries of anguish, and her songs of love and triumph.” The epigraph states: “The testimony of one soul is the experience of thousands.” As Harper’s Magazine (1874) wrote: “These poems . . . will give strength to many that feel the weariness, and faint under it, and that need just this cry of a labored trust as a means of conduct to the higher experience of joyous trust.”
