"Gipsy" Smith Wesleyan Methodist evangelist

“Gipsy” Smith MBE (31 March 1860 – 4 August 1947) was a Methodist evangelist who conducted evangelistic campaigns in Great Britain and round the world for over 70 years. He was converted at a Primitive Methodist open air meeting, an early member of the Salvation Army left them to become a Wesleyan evangelist. He sang like an angel and brought thousands to Christ. My Grandparents remembered him singing
“Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All his wonderful passion and purity,
O thou Spirit divine, all my nature refine,
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me”.

You can hear him on You Tube.

  • In 1947, I was with my Grand Father James W Belchar, at the Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento California. I was nine years old. Every night Gypsy Smith would open the Service with his song, “Let the Beauty of Jesus be seen in me.” I loved attending each service with my Grandfather, and was the only one of twelve Grandchildren who did so. I would like to communicate with you as your Grandparents may have been in my Grandfathers Church at that time. Thank you. Donna Pirone
