Representative Text

1 My soul, the Master speaks again
His earnest words to thee!
“Ye can not grow in love divine,
Except ye abide in me.

Refrain:
Except ye abide in me,
Except ye abide in me,
No part can ye bear,
No heav’nly joy share,
Except ye abide in me.

2 As branches bearing precious fruits
Firm in the vine must be,
So ye, my children, can not thrive,
Except ye abide in me. [Refrain]

3 Would ye my cause and kingdom share,
And all my glory see?
Be sure, this joy can not be thine,
Except ye abide in me.” [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 >
