Representative Text

1 Hear the gospel invitation,
All ye weary, tempest-tossed;
Christ now offers you salvation
Purchased at tremendous cost.

Christ is able, ready too,
Christ is willing, soul, are you?
He will cleanse you through and through,
Cleanse and save you now.

2 Hope and joy he freely giveth,
Peace and rest for pain and strife;
He that on the Son believeth
Now hath everlasting life. [Refrain]

3 Jesus died for your redemption,
All your sins he freely bore;
Come and hear his words of pardon,
Go in peace, and sin no more. [Refrain]

4 Nothing having, nothing bringing
But an humble contrite heart,
Simply to his promise clinging,
He salvation will impart. [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 >
