Representative Text

1. Sing we the praises of Jesus,
the wonderful Savior of men;
Sing how He died for our ransom,
yet liveth in glory again;
Tell how His grace is sufficient
a world of lost sinners to save;
Tell how whoever believeth
a perfect salvation shall have.

Wounded for our transgressions,
Treading the winepress alone;
Brought as a lamb to the slaughter,
Jesus the Infinite One.
Shall we not praise Him forever,
Worship His name and adore?
He who was slain, but now liveth again,
Is our Savior forevermore.

2. To Bethlehem of Judea
a Babe in a manger He came;
Lived He a life of the lowly,
enduring the cross and its shame;
Tempted in all points as we are,
and yet without sin was He found;
God-man, our frailties He knows,
and His grace doth to sinners abound. [Refrain]

3. Glory to God in the highest,
our glad hearts exultingly sing,
Praises forever and ever
to Jesus our Savior and King;
No more despised and rejected,
for sinners to suffer and die,
Worshipped, enthroned and exalted,
He liveth forever on high. [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 >
