Full Text

我要頌主大慈愛,口舌永說不盡;
甘願擔當我重刑,流血贖我罪身;
將我污穢洗潔淨,日日與神親近;
身靈安居主愛裡,永遠滿足我心。
主的愛滿足我心,主的愛滿足我心,
何等長闊高深,令我稱頌歡欣,主的愛滿足我心。

我要頌主大慈愛,與眾聖同歌吟;
欣感主愛激勵我,滿心火熱如焚;
甘願與我為密友;彼此靈交日親;
情意最厚恩無盡,越久主愛越深。
主的愛越久越深,主的愛越久越深,
猶如大海汪洋,我要時時歌唱,主的愛越久越深。

我要頌主大慈愛,遠超我的心願;
從主莫測之豐富,充滿,無量充滿;
永遠沈潛主愛中,時刻有新體驗;
愛我終必愛到底,主愛永不改變。
主的愛永不改變,主的愛永不改變,
從永遠到永遠,我要歡聲稱頌,主的愛永不改變。

Author: Mrs. C. H. Morris

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 >
