1. Of one blood God hath made all the nations of the earth,
Over all His banner wide unfurled;
And He bids us to go and His saving grace proclaim
To the whole wide world.

Refrain
For the whole wide world,
For the whole wide world;
Jesus dying brought a full salvation
For the whole wide world.

2. To the lanes and the highways and byways we must go,
Till the pow’rs of sin are backward hurled;
And the streams of His grace shall for cleansing onward flow
To the whole wide world. [Refrain]

3. We must carry the Gospel to earth’s remotest bound,
Men are dying for the precious Word;
Until every nation has heard the joyful sound
In the whole wide world. [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 >
