Hymnary Friends,

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.

Representative Text

1. There’s only one way that this lost world may know
That Jesus for sinners hath died;
To spread the glad tidings He’s bidden us go,
And no other way doth provide.

He’s counting on us, the story to tell
His scheme of redemption for man;
He’s counting on you, He’s counting on me,
The Master hath no other plan.

2. If Christ’s first disciples had silently gone,
And been to their great trust untrue,
God’s plan of salvation we could not have known,
His mercy for me and for you. [Refrain]

3. Tell others what Jesus hath done for your soul,
Of sins through His blood washed away;
And bid them on Him every burden to roll,
And taste His salvation today. [Refrain]

4. Dear Master, we hasten the story to tell,
And pass on the life giving Word;
And they must tell others, and they, others still,
Till all the glad message have heard. [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 >
