Rev. Dr. Sarah Ann Dixon

First pastor of the Federated Church of Hyannis, 1917 – 1924

On the occasion of The Federated Church of Hyannis’ incorporation, she wrote an “Anniversary Hymn” to the tune of “Onward Christian Soldiers”.

Here in part:

Facing toward the future
Hearts and minds afire
Trusting God Almighty
With our heart’s Desire.
We are not disheartened
We believe in Good
And the power of Love Divine
To heal the broken world.

An excerpt from Sarah Dixon’s book.
