Representative Text

1 ‘Twill be glory for me when the King I shall see,
When in safety I’ve crossed death’s dark river;
When redeemed by His grace I shall gaze on His face
To go out from His presence, no never.

‘Twill be glory by and by,
‘Twill be glory for me, yes, glory for you;
If to Christ we are true life’s whole journey thro’,
‘Twill be glory by and by.

2 ‘Twill be glory at last when my labors are past,
With life’s silver cord loosened and broken,
If thro’ grace I may stand with my hand in His hand,
And His “well done” to me shall be spoken. [Chorus]

3 ‘Twill be glory untold when the gates shall unfold
And I dwell safe at home with my Savior;
Hallelujah! we’ll sing, as we crown Him our King,
Hallelujah, forever and ever! [Chorus]

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 >
