Full Text

1 A present and perfect salvation I have
In Jesus my Saviour
For he is abundantly able to save
Both now and forever.

He saves me just now, hallelujah!
The past is all under the blood,
And Calvary’s flow makes me whiter than snow,
The past is all under the blood.

2 The blood of the Lamb cleanseth now from all sin,
Than snow makes me whiter;
The Comforter promised abideth within,
My path growing brighter. [Refrain]

3 The burden of guilt which so long I had borne,
In weight like a mountain;
The sins which had caused me so often to mourn,
All lost in the fountain. [Refrain]

4 He leads me so gently the way I should go,
My wonderful Keeper;
And gives sweetest comfort the world cannot know,
My peace growing deeper. [Refrain]

5 I’m lost and encompassed with wonderful love,
Though nothing I merit;
A beautiful mansion preparing above,
I soon shall inherit. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
