HYMN SPOTLIGHT

The King’s Business (1902)

Elijah Taylor Cassel, 1849-1930

This hymn is unusual in that it was written by a husband and wife team. Taylor Cassel was a physician practicing in Nebraska, when he answered the call to the gospel ministry at age 61. Moving to Colorado, he pastored two Baptist churches before retiring. His wife Flora, who composed the tune for this hymn, was a professional singer, music teacher, and prominent member of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. Together they collaborated on this hymn about missions inspired by today’s text from 2 Corinthians 5.
