Representative Text

1 Praises, sing praises to Jesus our blessed Redeemer,
Let ev’ry voice to him now a sweet melody raise;
Come ye before him, O worship and laud and adore him,
Lo, he is worthy our highest ascriptions of praise.

Make his praise glorious, Saviour victorious,
Throughout the world be his great name adored,
Make his praise glorious, Saviour victorious,
Let ev’ry thing that have breath praise the Lord.

2 Praise for the mercy which sought us when far we were straying,
Sought till he found us and bound us with strong cords of love;
Praise for salvation, this wonderful, blest revelation,
He who redeems us, carnality too, will remove. [Refrain]

3 Praises, sing praises, for glory out bosoms o’erflowing,
When in his fulness the Comforter comes to abide;
Praise for salvation, lost sinners to Calvary pointing,
Power for service, now freely and fully supplied. [Refrain]

4 Praises, sing praises, our wondering eyes shall behold him,
When in his beauty King Jesus descendeth to reign;
Coming in glory, O tell out the wonderful story,
Sing hallelujah! the Saviour is coming again. [Refrain]

5 Praise for the grace which is able to keep us from falling,
And to present us all faultless before the white throne;
’Mid joys supernal to praise him through ages eternal,
All the redeem’d ones, the blood-wash’d, his lov’d and his own. [Refrain]

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 >
