God's whosoever plan

Representative Text

1 God’s great invitation, his blest “whosoever”
Takes in you and me and the whole world beside;
His mercy is free and it flows like a river
From Calvary’s mountain, a sin-cleansing tide.

Refrain:
It includes you and me,
It includes you and me;
God’s gracious “whosoever” plan
Includes you and me.

2 Ho, ye that are thirsty, without price or money,
Come ye to the waters, and drink ye and live;
Come feast ye today on the wine, milk and honey,
And life everlasting ye surely shall have. [Refrain]

3 Come just as you are now if sin is your burden,
Here’s rest from your foes both without and within;
Return, for the Lord will abundantly pardon,
The blood of his Son cleanseth now from all sin. [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 >
