O Children Come – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

The recorded version of O Children Come features Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
Not back backing vocals for a church singalong.
I’m not intending to use this one, but I like the way the Getty’s stretch their idiom.

The lyrics:
1.
“Hear the cry from Bethlehem
O children come
Son of God now born to men
O children come –
Bring your troubles, bring your fears,
Bring the needs that draw you near,
Find the hope of all the years –
O children come!
O children come!
2.
Peace on earth good will to men
O children come
Righteous rule that will not end
O children come –
Lay down all your bitterness,
Turn from sin’s toil and distress,
Find His grace and perfect rest –
O children come!
O children come!
3.
Where the Father’s grace has walked
O children come
Where you see the hurt and lost
O children come –
Show the mercy shown to you,
Gifts of kindness to renew,
Love from hearts sincere and true –
O children come!
O children come!”
