Words & Mu­sic: Le­lia N. Mor­ris, 1900 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Lelia N. Morris (1862–1929)



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.


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.


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.


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.
