Let the Savior's Gentle Call

Let the Savior's gentle call

Author: Anonymous
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let the Saviour's gentle call
Reach the heart of one and all,
That the whole round world may own
Christ is King, and Christ alone.

2 Far and nigh the good news bring:
"Jesus Christ is Lord and King!"
Flash the word that God is near
O'er the air till all may hear.

3 Print the Word till all may read;
"Jesus is the Friend in need."
Preach the word on every shore
Till all men do God adore.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
