Full Text

1 My yielded heart says “yes” to Jesus,
“Amen” to all of His sweet will;
This vain, vain world no longer pleases,
But Christ doth all my vision fill.

Refrain:
I love thee, I love thee,
My life, my light, my star, my sun;
With joy I haste to follow Thee,
Forevermore “Thy will be done.”

2 The struggle past, the battle over,
Not mine, but Thine alone to be;
A love-slave to remain forever,
A captive, yet than bird more free. [Refrain]

3 “Amen,” whatever my condition,
For sorrow’s path Thyself hast trod;
And well I know these light afflictions
Are stepping-stones which lead to God. [Refrain]

4 “Amen,” dear Lord, “Amen” forever,
My all abandoned unto Thee;
Thy grace I know will fail me never;
I’ll be what Thou wouldst have me be. [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 >
