Representative Text

1 Go, look away to Calvary,
All ye by sin oppressed,
And there the dying Saviour see,
And in his love be blest.

Chorus:
Behold, behold, behold the Lamb of God,
Which taketh away the sin of the world,
Which taketh away the sin of the word;
Behold, behold the Lamb of God,
Which taketh away the sing of the word.

2 Of broken vows and failures oft
Thy heart has weary grown;
Then lift thy longing eyes aloft
To Christ the sinless one. [Chorus]

3 Go, trusting in the Blood alone,
Bow humbly at His feet;
‘Twill for the whole wide world atone,
A sacrifice complete. [Chorus]

4 One look of penitential love,
And simple trusting faith,
With all the guilt of sin remove,
And save from endless death. [Chorus]

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 >
