Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Representative Text

1 Rouse ye, Christian soldiers, for the conflict is at hand,
Satan’s hosts are marshaling, a bold, determined band;
Thro’ our valiant Leader shall the victory be won;
All the world shall serve Him if we ev’ry one bring one.

Ev’ry one bring one! Let all take up the glad refrain!
Ev’ry one bring one! Repeat it o’er and o’er again;
All the world shall come to Jesus Christ, the blessed Son,
Ev’ry heart confess Him, if we ev’ry one bring one.

2 Many hearts are weary with the heavy load of sin,
Many cheerless homes would gladly let the Savior in;
Souls that sit in shadows could be basking in the sun,
If the saved would pray in faith, and ev’ry one bring one. [Refrain]

3 Are you ready now to do the part that you can do?
Will you tell to others what the Lord has done for you?
Sit no longer idle, nor the path of duty shun,—
Save the whole wide world for Christ, and ev’ry one bring one. [Refrain]
