God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.@1 Thessalonians 4:7

Lelia N. Morris (1862-1929)

Lelia N. Morris, 1900 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Called unto holiness, Church of our God,
Purchase of Jesus, redeemed by His blood;
Called from the world and its idols to flee,
Called from the bondage of sin to be free.

Refrain

Holiness unto the Lord is our watchword and song.
Holiness unto the Lord as we’re marching along.
Sing it, shout it, loud and long,
Holiness unto the Lord, now and forever.

Called unto holiness, children of light,
Walking with Jesus in garments of white;
Raiment unsullied, nor tarnished with sin;
God’s Holy Spirit abiding within.

Refrain

Called unto holiness, praise His dear name!
This blessèd secret to faith now made plain:
Not our own righteousness, but Christ within,
Living, and reigning, and saving from sin.

Refrain

Called unto holiness, bride of the Lamb,
Waiting the Bridegroom’s returning again!
Lift up your heads, for the day draweth near
When in His beauty the King shall appear.
