Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga


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.

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 >
