Adelaide Ann Procter

Adelaide Ann Procter (1825 - 1864), poetess, was the eldest daughter of Bryan W. Procter. Many of her poems were first published in Household Words and All the Year Round, and afterwards collected under the title of Legends and Lyrics (1858), of which many ed. appeared.

In 1851 Miss Procter became a Roman Catholic. She took much interest in social questions affecting women. She wrote the well-known songs, Cleansing Fires and The Lost Chord, and among her many hymns are, I do not ask, O Lord, that Life may be, and My God, I thank Thee who hast made.
