Representative Text

1 God’s storehouse in heaven is filled to the brim
With all that we mortals may need;
And all that we’re needing is promised by him,
If only his promise we plead.

Chorus:
Then send to the storehouse, yes send ev’ry day,
Those good things are stored up for you;
The best of God’s blessings he’ll send if you pray,
His promise is faithful and true.

2 That storehouse o’erfloweth with infinite love,
‘Tis filled to the top with God’s grace;
And treasures abounding are laid up above,
While mercy is filling her place. [Chorus]

3 A room in that storehouse is filled up with joy,
Another is fill’d with God’s peace;
Another has gold without any alloy,
And one has from sin sweet release. [Chorus]

4 Why then do you hunger and thirst here below?
Why suffer with famine or pain?
For God has a storehouse to which you may go,
He’ll give more than you can contain. [Chorus]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill.
