What a Friend We Have in Jesus - Joseph Scriven
Joseph Medlicott Scriven was born Sept. 10th, 1819, at Ballymoney Lodge, Banbridge in County Down, Ireland. His father, Captain John Scriven, desired Joseph to train for a career in the military, but the Lord led differently, and he studied at Trinity College in Dublin. Here heard the gospel and was converted to full faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
