Representative Text

1 Ten thousand thousand souls there are
Entered within the door;
These countless souls are gathered in,
And yet there’s room for more.

Refrain:
Then come, O come, and go with me,
Where pleasure never dies;
And you shall gain the crown of life,
The soul’s eternal prize.

2 Room for the lame, the halt, the blind;
Sinner, there’s room for thee;
‘Twas Christ made room for such poor souls
By dying on the tree.

3 Room for the chief of sinners still,
Though plagued with unbelief;
That very Christ can save thy soul
Who saved the dying thief.

4 Then sure I am there’s room for me,
The worst of Adam’s race;
And so I’ll sing in songs of praise,
A sinner saved by grace.

Herbert, Daniel , for many years a Congregational Minister at Sudbury, Suffolk (b. circa 1751, d. Aug. 29, 1833), published:— Hymns & Poems, Doctrinal and Sentimental, for the Citizens of Zion, who are longing to know their election of God, and who love Evanqelical Truths. These were published in 3 volumes. (i., 1801; ii., 1819; iii., 1827). Both hymns and poems are very indifferent in quality, and strongly Calvinistic in doctrine. (Singers & Songs, by J. Miller, 1869.) -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology  Go to person page >
