1 I am standing now on the promises of God,
On the Rock that evermore endures;
And this song I sing as I journey on my way,
Claim the promises, and make him yours!

He is my Saviour, my Saviour,
Christ, the friend to sinners precious, make him yours!
He is my Saviour, my Saviour,
While he’s waiting to be gracious, make him yours.

2 All my sins are lost in the fountain of his blood;
Of my cleansing he my soul assures;
I want all the world of his saving grace to know;
Trust the Saviour now, and make him yours. [Refrain]

3 When earth’s cares press hard Jesus knows and understands,
And the toil of gladness on us pours;
You may have him now as your Saviour and your Lord;
He is my Redeemer, make him yours. [Refrain]

Author: Mrs. C. H. Morris

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 >
