Representative Text

1 Wouldst thou hear thy Savior’s voice?
Wouldst thou in his love rejoice?
Come and make his paths thy choice,
And his mighty aid implore.

Call! he will answer thee,
Call! he will answer thee,
Call and he will answer thee
With life forevermore.

2 Hast thou wandered from thy home?
Dost thou in the desert roam?
Hear him gently saying “come,”
And his wondrous love adore. [Refrain]

3 Is thy life with care oppressed?
Dost thou seek in vain for rest?
Come to him, and be thou blest,
And know sorrow nevermore. [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 >
