1 Holiness unto the Lord, shout it over hill and plain,
Waft it from pole unto pole on the Zephyr’s soft refrain;
Send it across the rolling waves as they stretch from shore to shore,
Holiness unto the Lord must resound for evermore.

Refrain:
Holiness unto the Lord,
Holiness unto the Lord,
Is the song the angels sing,
Is the chorus earth shall ring.
Holiness unto the blessed name,
Than man and angel adore;
Glory be unto the Lord,
Praise His name for evermore.

2 Holiness unto the Lord, nothing else can satisfy,
Pleasures of earth are in vain, riches oft take wings and fly;
But in this valley of woe and care in the midst of right and wrong,
Holiness unto the Lord is our slogan and our song. [Refrain]

3 Holiness unto the Lord, let our banners wave it high,
Have it inscribed on their folds whersoever they may fly;
Teach all the pilgrims of this earth, whether on the land or sea,
Holiness unto the Lord is salvation full and free. [Refrain]

4 Holiness unto the Lord, when from sin we find release,
Holiness unto the Lord, when we learn to follow peace;
Shouting this happy refrain of love—we shall find out by and by,
Holiness unto the Lord is our passport to the sky. [Refrain]

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. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
