Come, Ye Children of the Lord

Come, Ye Children of the Lord, piano solo (intermediate)
PDF, mp3

James H. Wallis penned the following words about the triumphant day of Christ's return:

Oh, how joyful it will be
When our Savior we shall see!
When in splendor he'll descend,
Then all wickedness will end.
Oh, what songs we then will sing
To our Savior, Lord, and King!
Oh, what love will then bear sway
When our fears shall flee away!

Set to a lively Spanish melody, "Come, Ye Children of the Lord" is an invitation to all to rejoice in life, to come unto Christ and prepare for His return to earth. This piano solo setting of this melody is my hopeful cry to believe the words of President Thomas S. Monson: "The future is as bright as your faith." (read the talk)
