Representative Text

1 When the tempests rage and the storms beat high
There is refuge near, and a shelter night;
He who calmed the winds and the rolling wave
Is Jehovah still and is strong to save.

Mighty to save and strong to deliver,
Jesus is mighty to save;
Mighty to save and strong to deliver,
Jesus is mighty to save.

2 Not a cloud so dark but His love shines thro’,
Not a shade so deep but His face we view;
For His arm is strong and His heart is kind,
All who in Him trust shall a Savior find. [Refrain]

3 Not a teardrop falls but the Savior knows,
And His great heart throbs with our bitter woes;
For He knows our flesh and our feeble frame,
Ev’ry pang we feel, He has known the same. [Refrain]

4 Never yet in vain has a sinner cried,
Never yet in vain was the blood applied;
Whosoever will may in Him be blest,
Whosoever will find a perfect rest. [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 >
