The Steadfast Love of the Lord

Composer Information

Composer: Not much is known about Edith McNeill (1920-2014), except that she was a long-time member of the Church of the Redeemer (Episcopal) in Houston, Texas, and that her husband was a professor at the University of Texas.  The Church of the Redeemer, founded in the 1920s in a depressed inner city area, went through a charismatic renewal in the early 1960s under the leadership of pastor Graham Pulkingham and his wife Betty, a composer and musician who was the spark behind many worship songs that arose out of that community, some of which are still sung today, including songs like “The Steadfast Love of the Lord” and “I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light” by Kathleen Thomerson.  The worship life of this congregation was very influential, and the Pulkinghams with a group of members left Redeemer in the early 1970s to begin an international ministry known as the Community of Celebration.
