Everyone

Representative Text

1 Oh, the Savior’s mighty hand can save
Every one!
‘Twas for all his precious blood he gave,
Every one;
Every one whose feet are falling,
‘Mid life’s dangers oft appalling,
Every one his voice is calling,
Every one, every one, every one.

2 Oh, we know his Spirit now is near
Every one!
And his tender love inviting here
Every one;
Every one, though long delaying,
Everyone though sadly straying,
Every on, though disobeying,
Every one, every one, every one.

3 Blessed Savior, help us now to come,
Every one!
Through the wilderness, oh, bring us home,
Every one;
Every one, to life eternal,
Every one to pastures vernal,
Every one to joys supernal,
Every one, every one, every one.
