1 Do you seek a land where there comes no night,
Blessed Beulah land, where the sun shines bright;
Where we walk by faith and not by sight,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost?
Will you be baptized in this faith?
Baptized with the Holy Ghost?
To be free indeed, ’tis the pow’r you need,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost.

2 Will you take him now as your all in all,
Let the self be slain, that that pow’r may fall?
Will you now in faith for the blessing call,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost?
Will you be baptized in this faith?
Baptized with the Holy Ghost?
To be free indeed, ’tis the pow’r you need,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost.

3 ‘Tis the Canaan-land for our weary feet,
With our wand’rings o’er and our rest complete;
Where we dwell with Christ in communion sweet,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost.
Will you be baptized in this faith?
Baptized with the Holy Ghost?
To be free indeed, ’tis the pow’r you need,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost.

4 Yes, we gladly come, blessed Lord, to thee,
From the carnal mind that we may be free;
And we look in faith, for we long to be
Baptized with the Holy Ghost.
Yes, I’ll be baptized in this faith,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost;
To be free indeed, ’tis the pow’r I need,
Baptized with the Holy Ghost.

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 >
