I AM NOT SKILLED TO UNDERSTAND

This hymn was one of the Songs of Salvation written by Dorothy Greenwell…affectionately known as Dora.  Her personality was described by many with the term “rippling sunshine.”  She took specific interest in those who were less fortunate, less educated or who had some physical or mental disabilities.  Dora poured herself – passion and purse – into loving and helping those who were misunderstood or mistreated by society.  One friend said, “Her life was hidden with Christ in God, but it was also wonderfully transparent to all who knew her…she had an amazing ability of making anyone happy in her presence!”

 

In 1873, Dora, wrote the 8 Songs of Salvation, which describe the practical application of faith in the lives of everyone including the partially educated.  Although more biographical information on Dorothy Greenwell is not available, her songs have been loved by believers down through the ages.

 

It is by the Grace of God, that all can know the “One who is our Saviour!”
