The lyrics to "No, Not One!" were written in 1895 by Johnson Oatman, Jr. Oatman worked full time in retail and the insurance business, and in his spare time was a Methodist Episcopal minister who wrote hymns on the side (over 5,000 in his life). Many of his hymns remain popular today, including "The Hallelujah Side," "He Included Me," "Higher Ground," and "The Last Mile of the Way."
My son, Jubal, joins us on the fiddle and daughter, Bonny, on vocals.
The first eight notes of "No, Not One!" are identical to the beginning notes of another hymn on this site. Can you find it? Let us know
