This may be Annie S Ormsby who also wrote poetry. Her name is sometimes associated with that beautiful gospel hymn:

"Come!" 'Tis Jesus gently calling
Ye with care and toil oppressed;

See also: 'Marching Home Together' by Annie S. Ormsby.

Sweet to tread the desert land
Marching home together;
Heart to heart and hand in hand,
Marching home together.
Dark and rough the way may be,
Often clouds hang o'er us;
But it is the path where He,
Christ, has gone before us.

Marching home! marching home!
Marching home together;
Heart to heart and hand in hand,
Marching home together.

Strangers here, we seek no place,
Marching home together;
Every step we learn His grace,
Marching home together.
Every need by Him supplied,
Wakes a note of singing;
Every sorrow sanctified
Praise to Him is bringing

Marching home! &c.

Every day the miles grow less,
Marching home together;
As our footsteps onward press,
Marching home together.
Even now we catch a gleam,
Hear the chorus swelling,
As each wanderer finds a place
In the Father's dwelling.

Marching home! &c.

Will you join our happy band?
Marching home together;
Travelling to the better land,
Marching home together.
Will you wait with us for Him,
Who will soothe all sorrow,
Gazing past earth's dark to-day
To Heaven's bright to-morrow?

Marching home! &c.
