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 Make me a winner of souls, dearest Lord;
Many in darkness are straying
Far from the light of thy excellent word,
Evermore idleing, delaying.

Make me a winner of souls,
Give me thy Spirit I pray;
Make me a winner of souls, dearest Lord
And help me to help some one today.

2 Give me a tender, compassionate love
Over the lost of earth yearning;
Like to my Lord’s when he came from above,
Snatched me a brand from the burning. [Refrain]

3 Make me a blessing each day that I live,
Somebody’s path to make brighter;
Ever a helping hand ready to give
Somebody’s load to make lighter. [Refrain]

4 No preparation beyond the dark tomb,
Help me to sound out the warning;
Though in God’s mercy today there is room
Hast’neth the great judgment morning. [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 >
