“Blest Be the Tie That Binds”
John Fawcett (1740-1817), was born to a poor family in Yorkshire, England and orphaned at age 12. He began to work for a tailor to survive. He became a Christian in his teens after hearing the great George Whitfield preach.
He became active in a Baptist church and at age 25 (and a newlywed), he was invited to pastor a small church at Wainsgate. The people were poor and able to pay only a little and much of John’s pay came as potatoes and other produce.
When children began to arrive, the family found it hard to survive. Then John applied to be pastor of a large Baptist church in London. He was accepted at a much larger salary and the family prepared to move.
But, the story is told, Mary told John that she just couldn’t leave the people they had learned to love. John shared her sentiment, so the two of them unpacked and told the London church they would not be coming.
Then John, who wrote a number of hymns during his lifetime, wrote this hymn to convey his sentiments and those of Mary to the poor people among whom they had chosen to live.
John Fawcett served that little church for the rest of his life – 54 years in all.

  What a Friend We Have in Jesus

In 1845, Joseph Scriven, 25, lost his fiancée in a drowning on the eve of their wedding. Reeling from the tragedy, he left his mother behind in Ireland and went to Canada. In 1855, he received word that his mother was facing a crisis. He wrote this poem and sent it to her. She shared it with a friend who had it published anonymously and it quickly became a popular hymn.

Sadly, his second fiancée died from tuberculosis in 1860 before their wedding could take place. Joseph poured himself into ministry and charity work for the Plymouth Brethren and preaching among the Baptists.

He lived a simple, obscure life in Port Hope, Canada, cutting firewood for widows, giving away his clothes and money to those in need. He was described as “a man of short stature, with iron-gray hair, close-cropped beard, and light blue eyes that sparkled when he talked.”

When asked if he composed the hymn, he replied, “The Lord and I did it between us.” In October 1896, he became critically ill. In his delirium, he rose from his bed and staggered outside where he fell into a creek and drowned at age 66.
