Representative Text

1. I am happy today and the sun shines bright,
The clouds have been rolled away;
For the Savior said, whosoever will
May come with Him to stay.

"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
Surely meaneth me, O surely meaneth me;
"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
"Whosoever," meaneth me.

2. All my hopes have been raised, O His name be praised,
His glory has filled my soul;
I've been lifted up, and from sin set free,
His blood has made me whole.

"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
Surely meaneth me, O surely meaneth me;
"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
"Whosoever," meaneth me.

3. O what wonderful love, O what grace divine,
That Jesus should die for me;
I was lost in sin, for the world I pined,
But now I am set free.

"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
Surely meaneth me, O surely meaneth me;
"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
"Whosoever," meaneth me.

McConnell attended the Webb Preparatory School in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, and William Jewell College, Liberty, Missouri. He worked with his father (former pastor of the First Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) in evangelism meetings for some time, playing the piano, singing, and directing the choir. In 1922 he began broadcasting his "Hymn Time" program on the radio, and was known as "Smilin’ Ed McConnell." © Cyber Hymnal™ (www.hymntime.com/tch) Go to person page >
