Representative Text

1 Go in the strength of the Master,
Go, ‘twas his parting command,
Seeking the lost ones to gather,
Scattered abroad o’er the land.
Lost, yet he tenderly loves them,
Precious are they in his sight;
You he commissions to bring them
Back to the truth and the right.

Go! Go! Go! Go!
Tell them his blood washes whiter than snow;
Go! Go! Go!

2 Go now in youth’s early morning,
Gather the wand’rers of earth;
Seek for his bright crown’s adorning
Lost gems of fabulous worth.
Go while the bright sun is shining;
Now is salvation’s glad hour;
Go ere the day is declining,
Go in the time of his pow’r. [Refrain]

3 Go, and the Lord will go with thee,
Keeping thy feet in the way;
Wisdom and strength he will give thee,
Teaching thee what thou shouldst say.
Faithful until he shall call thee
Home to receive thy reward;
Hear his “Well done, good and faithful:
Enter the joys of thy Lord.” [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 >
