Sarah Flower Adams (22 February 1805 – 14 August 1848) was an English poet.
Early life and family
Her longest work is Vivia Perpetua, A Dramatic Poem (1841), having as its subject the life of the early Christians.
Adams was a Unitarian and wrote several hymns in her lifetime, among which are "Nearer, my God, to Thee" and "He sendeth sun, He sendeth shower". "Nearer, my God, to Thee" is of particular historical significance as it is reputed to have been the final piece played by eight musicians on The RMS Titanic as it sank on 14 April 1912.
