Representative Text

1 What think ye of Christ? O solemn word,
On which we stand or fall!
Who was the wondrous Being here,
Who died to save us all?

Refrain:
The Wonderful, the Counsellor!
The great and mighty Lord!—
The everlasting Father he,
By all in heaven adored.

2 What think ye of Christ! to whom all power
In earth and heaven belongs?
Who as the King of kings we praise
In loud and joyful songs? [Refrain]

3 What think ye of Christ, in whom is all
The fullness of our God?
Who as Immanuel our King,
With us on earth abode? [Refrain]

4 What think ye of Christ? do we in prayer,
Heed well his high behest?—
Come unto ME—there’s none beside,
To give the weary rest. [Refrain]

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 >
