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

Still there is room

Representative Text

1 There is room in the love of the Father above,
For ev’ry lost sinner astray;
For the blood of his Son has redeemed ev’ry one,
And now there is nothing to pay.

Refrain:
Room, room, still there is room,
For the sinfulest and unworthiest;
Room, room, still there is room,
There’s room in God’s kingdom for all.
Room, room, still there is room,
Come, ye weary ones! come, ye burdened ones!
Room, room, plenty of room,
There’s room in God’s kingdom for all.

2 There is room in God’s grace for the whole human race,
A welcome for you and for me;
Now the Spirit invites and all heaven unites,
Proclaiming, salvation is free. [Refrain]

3 There’s room ‘round the throne where our loved ones are gone;
With the heav’nly harpers they stand;
They’re apart in the song with the glorified throng,
A home at the Father’s right hand. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
