1 There’ll be show’rs of blessing from our Father’s hand,
On His word of promise we may firmly stand;
There’ll be rains refreshing on the thirsty land
When the tithes are gathered in.

Refrain:
Tithes of love and willing service,
Tithes of silver and of gold;
When the tithes are gathered in,
When the tithes are gathered in,
There’ll be blessings more than we can contain,
When the tithes are gathered in.

2 There’ll be shouts of triumph from the conq’ring host,
There’ll be perfect freedom in the Holy Ghost;
Ev’ry one empowered as at Pentecost,
When the tithes are gathered in. [Refrain]

3 Then will come the dawning of the reign of peace,
When the wars and conflicts shall forever cease,
And for struggling saints shall come a sweet release,
When the tithes are gathered in. [Refrain]

4 We will rob no longer, then, our Lord and King,
What to Him belongeth we will gladly bring,
And we’ll shout hosanna, while the glad harps sing,
When the tithes are gathered in. [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 >
