After attending a revival meeting by Ruben Archer Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist.

Harkness was especially well known for his program “The Music of the Cross,” and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
