Margaret Emma Barber (1865-1930), British missionary to China, Anglican who adopted Plymouth Brethren views, credited with influencing the views of Watchman Nee.

"The writer of these little Song-messages had, during the last few months of her life, a strong desire to send out some of the words and comfort the Lord had given her in booklet form, in order to reach a wider circle of the Lord's own. He took her to Himself before the desire could be realised, but they are now sent forth with the prayer that they may bring some cheer to fellow-pilgrims, travelling Home to God."

A collection of poetry or songs, text only, often with a Bible verse at the head.

"Barber did not leave behind any writings other than a small volume of poems (later changed into hymns) that was later published by Miss Ballord (Miss Ballord was her niece) in China. These compositions demonstrate her striving to live 'in the Lord's presence,' as well as her eager anticipation of Christ's coming back." - courtesy of Wikipedia.

"She was one who was very deep in the Lord, and in my opinion, the kind of fellowship she had with the Lord and the kind of faithfulness she expressed to the Lord are rarely found on this earth.” - Watchman Nee, ’’Watchman Nee: A Seer of the Divine Revelation in the Present Age.’’ Anaheim: Living Stream Ministry, 1991:18.
