1 Come to the Savior, make no delay -
Here in His Word He's shown us the way;
Here in our midst He’s standing today,
Tenderly saying, "Come!"

Chorus:
Joyful, joyful will the meeting be,
When from sin our hearts are pure and free,
And we shall gather, Savior, with Thee,
In our eternal home.

2 "Suffer the children!" O hear His voice,
Let ev'ry heart leap forth and rejoice,
And let us freely make Him our choice:
Do not delay, but come. [Chorus]

3 Think once again, He’s with us today -
Heed now His blest commands, and obey;
Hear now His accents tenderly say,
"Will you, my children, come? [Chorus]

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 >
