Wesley Quote

“…not ‘even baptism is ‘necessary to salvation’…

If it were every Quaker must be damned

which I can in no wise believe.”

Tender, GROWING plants move (literally) toward the Light. 

Dead plants do not

If we are Growing in Christ, we move up in His Light.

BOOK OF BOOKS

 

There is Book made up of Books,

It condemns wrong, toward heaven looks,

To be great-minded, daily read It.

To be long-wise, you should heed It.

Don’t listen to modernist “crooks.”

ON THIS DATE

Lelia Naylor was born 4/15/1862 at Pennsville, OH (near center of the triangle formed by US22, US33 & I-77) later living in both Malta & OH.   In fact, she was the organist at the McConnelsville Methodist Episcopal church & is thought to have composed the following songs in that sanctuary: “Sweeter As the Years Go By,” “Nearer, Still Nearer,” & “Let Jesus Come Into Your Heart” (a different source suggests the last was composed at a camp meeting in Mountain Lake Park, Maryland).

In 1881 she married Charles H. Morris & were blessed with at least two children: a son who (as she was losing her eyesight) created a 28’ blackboard with “over-sized staff lines,” & a daughter Frances who married a Mr Lunk & is known to have lived in Auburn, OH in the late 1920’s.  She was active at camp meetings, like Old Camp Sychar, Mt. Vernon, Ohio & Sebring Camp in Sebring, Ohio.

Mrs Charles Morris or Lelia Naylor Morris wrote both the words & the music for many of her 1000(+) songs.  Some were published in a hymnal called Pentecostal Praises.  They include “Tis Marvelous & Wonderful” “What If It Were Today?” “Stranger of Galilee” & the one people have kidded about singing at a wedding [J] “The Fight Is On.” She died in a daughter’s house, 7/23/1929, Auburn, OH.

If you are tired of the load of your sin, Let Jesus come into your heart; If you desire a new life to begin, Let Jesus come into your heart.

Refrain  Just now, your doubtings give o’er; Just now, reject Him no more; Just now, throw open the door; Let Jesus come into your heart.

  1. If it’s for purity now that you sigh, Let Jesus come into your heart; Fountains for cleansing are flowing nearby, Let Jesus come into your heart.
