Representative Text

1 Doubt no more thy Savior’s power,
But in his strength be brave;
Oh, come, and learn this very hour
That he is able to save.

Able to save,
Able to save
All who with gladness his word can receive;
Able to save,
Able to save,
E’en to the uttermost, all who believe.

2 To thy deadly foes within
No longer be the slave,
But stretch thine arms to Christ, thy King,
That he is able to save. [Refrain]

3 Come, no more thy love withhold,
But pardon humbly crave,
And thou shalt find with joy untold
That he is able to save. [Refrain]

Root, George F., MUS. DOC, born in Sheffield, Berkshire County, Mass., Aug. 30, 1820. He is much more widely known as a composer of popular music than as a hymn writer. Four of his hymns are in I. D. Sankey's Sacred Songs & Solos, 1878. Nos. 16, 100, 293, and 297. A sympathetic biographical sketch, with portrait, is in The Tonic Sol-Fa Reporter, Sep. 1886. He died Aug. 6, 1895. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
