Lelia N. Morris (1862–1929)



Oh, I can’t tell it all, of the wonderful love,
How when lost in my sins Je­sus found me,
With a heart full of love,
How He came from above,
Threw His strong arms of mercy around me.


Oh, I can’t tell it all, no, I can’t tell it all,
For my heart is so full of His glo­ry;
And where’er I may roam,
’Tis my joy to make known,
Unto others, the wonderful story.

Oh, I can’t tell it all, how He freely forgave;
How the blood flowed with wonderful healing
O’er my lost, guilty soul,
How it cleansed and made whole,
While low at the cross I was kneeling.


Oh, I can’t tell it all, what a friend He has been;
How He’s borne all my sorrows and sadness,
How he saves me today,
Bids the mists clear away,
How He turns all my mourning to gladness.
