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.

Refrain:
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 >
