Habershon, Ada


Ada Habershon was born on January 8, 1861, at St. Marylebone, London, England.
She was the youngest daughter of Doctor Samuel Osborne Habershon and Grace Habershon. She was brought up in a Christian home by believing, praying parents, and her whole life was devoted to God’s service. In 1901, she began writing poetry while ill and wrote ‘Apart with Him’. She met Dwight Moody and Ira Sankey when they visited London in 1884, and visited America at their invitation to deliver lectures on the Old Testament, which were later published. During the 1905 Torrey-Alexander Mission, Charles Alexander asked her to write some Gospel songs; within a year, she supplied him with 200!
Ada died on February 1, 1918 at St. Marylebone.
