Representative Text

1 This wonderful question of questions
Comes often to you and to me,
For Christ or the world we are choosing,
O, which, brother, which shall it be?

Refrain:
This wonderful question of questions,
O settle it all today;
Like Mary the better part choosing,
To Jesus committing your way;
This wonderful question of questions,
O settle it all today.

2 The broad road of sin lies before you,
Inviting it seemeth today,
But better, far better, tho’ rugged,
With Jesus, the straight, narrow way. [Refrain]

3 So long on the wide ocean tossing
With billows of doubt and unrest,
Cast over the anchor and trust him,
And enter the haven so blest. [Refrain]

4 Let nothing now hinder your coming,
To linger you cannot afford;
Give over your fearing and strugg’ling,
Sink into the will of your Lord. [Refrain]

Author: Mrs. C. H. Morris

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 >
