A selection from a letter by the beloved hymn writer, Francis Ridley Havergal to a friend, written in 1871:

I feel very much inclined to send you this text: “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Because that takes in all “the way.” For if true now, it must have always been true, even when most imperfectly recognised. And we cannot get beyond “never.”

Letters by the Late Frances Ridley Havergal, edited by her sister, Maria V. G. Havergal, first published in 1885, reprinted by Kessinger Publishing, p. 177.
