The Poetry of Amy Carmichael set to music
His Faithfulness is a refreshing, reflective CD which puts the rich poetry of Amy Carmichael to appropriately gentle, stirring melodies written by songwriter Jim Spencer. This is one of the most worthy musical projects we have seen this year and serves Amy’s poetry with great credit, highlighting her testimony to the faithfulness of God in all His works.
Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) was an Irish missionary to India known for her tireless and sacrificial labors which resulted in the conversion of countless young women, delivering many of them from forcible enslavement to base lifestyles.

“The poems of Amy Carmichael are saturated with the quiet warmth that flows from intimacy with God. They are also powerful, born from confidence in God’s sufficiency and faithfulness, and solidly rooted in the Scripture. Woven together with the gentle, haunting melodies and arrangements of Jim Spencer, these lyrics provide a fresh window into the Father’s heart and the Savior’s love. This CD will enrich and enliven your soul!”
