Representative Text

1 We’re going thro’ with Jesus!
He into battle leads us;
Enlisted in the army of the Lord are we;
His colors proudly wearing,
His shield and banner bearing,
With Christ, our Captain, marching on to victory!

Refrain:
We’re going thro’ with Jesus!
Forevermore we will be true!
We’re going thro’ with Jesus!
The glorious prize is still in view!
We’re going thro’ with Jesus!
And in His strength we shall prevail;
We’re going thro’ with Jesus!
Our anchor’s cast within the vail.

2 The yoke of bondage galling,
From burdened hearts is falling
Before the onward marching of the Prince of Peace!
The conqu’ring hosts assemble;
And Satan’s armies tremble;
The time is near when wars and tumults all shall cease. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ earthly friends forsake us,
And seeming ill o’ertake us,
Thro’ grace divine we’ll come off conqu’rors in the strife;
We have His word assuring,
If to the end enduring,
We with the faithful shall receive a crown of life. [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 >
