Representative Text

1 Oh, Jesus Christ thou dying Lamb,
In whom I trust, and whose I am;
I yield the life Thou gavest me,
Forever only Thine to be.

Christ of my soul, Thou blessed meek and lowly One,
Christ of my soul, Thou glorious high and holy One,
Christ of my soul, Thou altogether lovely One,
Whose I am and whom I serve.

2 Thy yoke upon me I would take
And humbly bear it for Thy sake;
Of Thee the meek and lowly learn,
While crucial fires within me burn. [Chorus]

3 Thou needest not my praise, I know,
Yet all my heart desires to show,
By the best service I can bring
My full allegiance to my King. [Chorus]

4 Complete in Thee, I hope to stand
With saints redeemed at Thy right hand,
Clothed in Thy righteousness alone,
To sing Thy praise before the throne. [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 >
