1 The Savior has come in His mighty power,
And spoken peace to my soul;
And all of my life from that very hour
I’ve yielded to His control,
I’ve yielded to His control.
Marvelous and wonderful,
What He has done for my soul!
The half has never been told;
Oh, it is wonderful.
It is marvelous and wonderful,
What Jesus has done for this soul of mine!
The half has never been told.
2 ’Twas only a foretaste of joys divine
In Canaan waiting for me,
Where sweetest of honey and milk and wine
Were dripping from every tree,
Were dripping from every tree. [Refrain]
3 From glory to glory He leads me on,
From grace to grace every day;
And brighter and brighter the glory dawns,
While pressing my homeward way,
While pressing my homeward way. [Refrain]
4 If fellowship here with my Lord can be
So inexpressibly sweet,
Oh, what will it be when His face we see,
When ’round the bright throne we meet?
When ’round the bright throne we meet? [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."
