Representative Text

1 We’re saved to save others, to point out the way
To mansions eternal above;
Here on the King’s business we’re telling each day,
The story of wonderful love.

Refrain:
We’re saved to save others,
To lead erring souls to the light,
We’re saved to save others,
To win them from darkness to light.
We’re saved for two worlds,
For time and eternity;
Saved, saved,
Yes, saved to save others are we.

2 “Go ye and disciple all nations,” said He;
The Master’s commission is plain;
“Take up thy cross daily, henceforth follow Me,
And thou shalt be fishers of men.” [Refrain]

3 Go out in the highways and byways of sin
And seek for the souls that are lost,
For Jesus’ sake hasten to gather them in,
Go win them whatever the cost. [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 >
