Representative Text

1 Wanted, wanted, loyal hearts are wanted,
Faithful in the service of our Lord and King;
Hearts with true love burning,
Hearts o'er sinners yearning,
Seeking evermore the lost ones back to bring.

Out into the harvest field and labor while you may,
Out into the harvest field, work while 'tis call'd today;
Ye loyal hearts and true, and lab'rers not a few,
Wanted, wanted, the Lord hath need of you.

2 Wanted, wanted, tongues of fire are wanted,
Consecrated lips with Pentecost aflame;
Free to tell the story
Of His pow'r and glory,
Glad to go a full salvation to proclaim. [Chorus]

3 Wanted, wanted, helping hands are wanted,
Willing hands to labor any time or where;
Fields with harvest bending,
God His reapers sending,
Who will go the precious golden sheaves to bear? [Chorus]

4 Wanted, wanted, holy lives are wanted,
Showing unto sinners Jesus' pow'r to save;
Freed from condemnation,
Kept by His salvation,
Spent in service here the lives He freely gave. [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 >
