Sarah Fuller Flower Adams

Sarah Fuller Flower Adams (February 22 1805-August 14 1848) was an English poet, born February 22, 1805 in Harlow, Essex.
She was the younger daughter of Journalist and Politician, Mr. Benjamin Flower. Although at first, Sarah wanted to be an actress, unfortunately, Mrs. Adams was struck by poor health (though she did get to play Lady Macbeth in 1837), so she turned to writing. This included many magazine articles; a poem about early Christian martyrs called Vivia Perpetua (1841), which was her longest work (A Dramatic Poem, having as its subject the life of the early Christians); The Flock at the Fountain (1845), a children’s catechism; and.the author of several hymns, among which are “Nearer, my God, to Thee” and “He sendeth sun, He sendeth shower.”
In 1834 she married William Bridges Adams, polemicist and railway engineer. They lived at Loughton, Essex. A blue plaque was placed there to mark the couple. She died from tuberculosis at the age of 43 and was buried at Harlow on August 21, 1848.
