Representative Text

1 When the ransom'd ones shall gather over in the heav'nly land,
Palms of vict'ry, crowns of glory now to wear;
Covered with the blood of Jesus, in his righteousness to stand,
Glory, glory hallelujah, I'll be there.

Chorus:
Yes, I'll meet you in the city of the new Jerusalem,
I'll be there, I'll be there.
For I'm going home to dwell with the Lord I love so well,
Glory, glory hallelujah, I'll be there.

2 When the hallelujah chorus sweeps across the crystal sea,
When the sounds of holy triumph fill the air;
Where the heav'nly plains reecho with the sounds of victory,
Glory, glory hallelujah, I'll be there.
[Chorus]

3 When they crown the blessed Saviour, King of kings, and Lord of all,
And in rapture gaze upon his face so fair;
Where they cast their crowns before him, prostrate at his feet they fall,
Glory, glory hallelujah, I'll be there. [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 >
