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 Step out on the promise of Jesus,
All ye who believe on His name;
His pow’r from iniquity frees us
Today, and forever the same.

Refrain:
Step out on God’s promise, His wonderful promise,
Be whole thro’ the blood of the Lamb;
There’s mercy for you, and there’s mercy for me!
Be whole thro’ the blood of the Lamb.

2 Your sins may be grievous, and many,
And number the sands of the sea;
God wills not the dying of any,
But all His salvation may see. [Refrain]

3 Your gold could not purchase your ransom,
Your tears wash the sin-stains away;
In Jesus alone is redemption,
And this is salvation’s glad day. [Refrain]

4 Come now to the fountain of cleansing,
For time is swift passing away;
The days of probation are ending,
There’s danger and death in delay. [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 >
