Miss Ada Blenkhorn, the authoress of “Let the sunshine in,” and many other familiar pieces, began writing hymns in 1892. Of this hymn, a prison chaplain said, “It has done our prisoners more good than all the sermons preached to them.” Another said, “‘Let the sunshine in’ brought the first ray of light to a condemned criminal, who was converted, afterwards pardoned, and who has for several years been preaching the Gospel.” Some years ago Miss Blenkhorn had almost decided to give up hymn writing, when one day a lady, whom she happened to meet, said to her, “May some soul be converted through a hymn that you shall write, who would not be converted if you do not write it! ““Those beautiful and inspiring words,” writes Miss Blenkhorn, “seemed an invisible and mighty chain that held me fast and would not let me give up.”
