Representative Text

1 “Be filled with the Spirit,” O have ye not heard it,
Our hearts for his blessed indwelling were made?
The Comforter promised within us abiding,
Whose mind and whose soul upon Jesus are stay’d.

“Be filled with the Spirit,”
The Savior’s commandment obey,
“Be filled with the Spirit,”
Receive ye the blessing today.

2 “Be filled with the Spirit,” the Savior demands it,
“Be strong in the Lord and the pow’r of his might,”
Receive ye the holy anointing for service,
That you may win others from darkness to light. [Refrain]

3 “Be filled with the Spirit,” the promise inherit,
Let each one his Pentecost fully receive,
The wonderful blessing in all of its fulness
For all who on Jesus the Son will believe. [Refrain]

4 “Be filled with the Spirit,” be filled to o’erflowing
That others thro’ you this salvation may know;
The beautiful Christ-life that dwelleth within you
His power revealing wherever you go. [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 >
