Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I’m walking now with Christ the Lord,
In fellowship of love divine;
In harmony and sweet accord,
I now am his, and he is mine.

On mountain height, where all is bright,
Or in the vale, with shadows dim,
It matters not what be my lot,
If only I may be with him.

2 Sometimes he leads to lofty heights,
Where golden sun beams gild my way;
The “Sun of Righteousness” my light,
And night seems lost in cloudless day. [Refrain]

3 Sometimes my Father deems it best
That I should thro’ the valley go;
His presence makes the way so blest,
I could not fear or sorrow know. [Refrain]

4 And thus ‘tis always well with me,
Since Jesus doth with me abide;
I could not sad or lonely be
With such a Saviour by my side. [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 >
