Susannah Harrison, 1752-1784.

Notes from Dr. Julian's Hymnology:

Miss Harrison was invalided from her work as a domestic servant at the age of 21, published Songs in the Night, 1780. This included 133 hymns, and passed through 10 editions. She is known by "Begone, my worldly cares, away" and "O happy souls that love the Lord". She died Aug 3rd. 1784.

Miss Harrison's hymn in 'Spiritual Songs' is no. 448, "Look, look, ye saints within the veil, And raise your happy song". This young and short life, cast in a humble mode, certainly had its hopes and joys in another world. God uses the weak things of the world as well as the noble and intellectual.
