Representative Text

1 Just to trust in the Lord, just to lean on His word,
Just to feel I am His ev'ry day;
Just to walk by His side with His Spirit to guide,
Just to follow where He leads the way.

Chorus:
Just to say what He wants me to say,
And be still when He whispers to me;;
Just to go where He wants me to go,
Just to be what He wants me to be.

2 When my way darkest seems, when are blighted my dreams,
Just to feel that the Lord knoweth best;
Just to yield to His will, just to trust, and be still,
Just to lean on His bosom and rest. [Chorus]

3 Then my heart will be light, then my path will be bright,
If I've Jesus for my dearest friend;
Counting all loss but gain, such a friend to obtain,
True and faithful He'll be to the end. [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 >
