Mountain of blessing

Full Text

1 Go up to the mountain of blessing
Alone with the Master in prayer,
In fellowship sweet to sit at His feet,
And tarry awhile with Him there.

Then down to the work in the valley below,
Your face with the love light of Jesus aglow;
Then down to the work in the valley below,
Fearlessly, bravely go.

2 This old world is dying for Jesus;
So many are sin-sick and sad,
And Jesus alone for sin can atone,
He only their hearts can make glad. [Refrain]

3 Go oft to the mountain of blessing,
For service your heart to prepare;
For those He will trust who walk with Him most,
And oftenest meet Him in prayer. [Refrain]

Author: Mrs. C. H. Morris

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 >
