Representative Text

1 Let those who’ve never known our Lord and King
Go mourning all the day, go mourning all the day;
But we’ve a song of joy we love to sing
While pressing on our upward way.

hallelujah! for the blood which redeems us,
Hallelujah! we’ll sing it o’er and o’er;
Hallelujah! for the blood of the blessed Son of God,
Hallelujah! forevermore.

2 ‘Tis heav’n within a sinner’s heart to know
His burden rolled away, his burden rolled away;
His sins like crimson, made as white as snow,
And Christ the Lord come in to stay. [Refrain]

3 The blood, the precious blood of God’s dear Son
Is on my soul today, is on my soul today,
And fears and doubtings from my heart have flown
Since Jesus washed my sins away. [Refrain]

4 Some day before the great white throne we’ll sing
The hallelujah song, the hallelujah song
Of praise and honor to our God and King,
With all the ransomed, blood-washed throng. [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 >
