Representative Text

1 Jesus Christ the world’s Redeemer who has bought you for his own,
Would to all the blessed fulness of his saving grace make known;
He would give you peace and comfort which no other pow’r could bring,
In your heart why not enthrone him and make Jesus King?

Make Jesus King, crown him your Lord and Saviour,
Make Jesus King in heart and in life enthroned;
Make Jesus King, worship him now and ever,
Adore him, and praise him, and crown him King.

2 Come not with a heart divided, gladly yield to him your all,
In a perfect consecration humbly at his footstool fall;
Let the waters of salvation be in you a living spring;
Give your fears and doubtings over and make Jesus King. [Refrain]

3 He is coming, he is coming back to earth to claim his own;
Would you be among the number who shall share his royal throne?
Would you join the mighty chorus that shall make the heavens ring?
Watching, waiting for his coming, then make Jesus King. [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 >
