1 I have a great Savior who saves ev'ry day,
Who guideth my feet lest I wander astray;
Who leads ev'ry step of life’s weary-some way,
I have such a Savior—have you?

Chorus:
I have such a Savior—have you?
Is my Savior you Savior, too?
Has He entered the door, to depart nevermore?
Is my Savior your Savior too?

2 A Helper have I in whom I can confide,
In dangers and trials He’s close by my side,
And keeps me so sweetly tho’ tempted and tried,
I have such a Helper—have you? [Chorus]

3 I have a great Shepherd who loveth His sheep,
Who calls them by name, and in safety doth keep;
They feed in green pastures by still waters deep,
I have such a Shepherd—have you? [Chorus]

4 I’ve found a great Shelter from life’s wintry blast,
In storm and in tempest He holdeth me fast;
My hope as an anchor on Jesus I’ve cast,
I have such a Shelter—have you? [Chorus]

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 >
