1 Fully surrendered, Lord divine,
I will be true to thee;
All that I am, or have, is thine,
I will be true to thee.

Refrain:
I will be true to thee, Lord,
I will be true to thee;
Where thou leadest me,
I will follow thee,
I will be true to thee.

2 Tho’ it may cost me friends and home,
I will be true to thee;
Cause me in lands afar to roam,
I will be true to thee. [Refrain]

3 Now to the world I bid farewell,
I will be true to thee;
Broken forever its deep spell,
I will be true to thee. [Refrain]

4 I will go with thee all the way,
I will be true to thee;
All of thy bidding will obey,
I will be true to thee. [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 >
