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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Redemption is offered by Jesus the Lord
To all who would pardon receive;
The terms of salvation laid down in God’s word
Are but to “Repent and believe.”

Reject Him no longer, but come as thou art.
In loving surrender give Jesus thy heart;
Salvation this moment from him to receive,
This all he requireth, “Repent and believe.”

2 Thou never couldst merit this wonderful gift,
Tho’ years thou shouldst struggle and try;
Think not of thy fitness, but think of the love
Which caused Him for sinners to die. [Refrain]

3 No sin could so blacken the fair page of life,
And cause thee God’s wrath to receive,
As scorning the love of His Son crucified,
Refusing on Him to believe. [Refrain]

4 A perfect salvation from Christ to receive
If thou with His terms will comply;
Repent and believe, and eternally live,
Refuse, and eternally die. [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 >
