Sacred Music Sunday: Come, Ye Children of the Lord

I’ve always loved the hymn Come, Ye Children of the Lord. It brings to mind the joy that will fill the earth when Jesus returns. No more sorrow, no more sin, no more death.

In the Lord’s Prayer, one of the things Jesus taught us to pray is “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” But rather than waiting for some time in the future when Jesus fixes our messes, I want to get a head start. What can we, as individuals, do to make earth a little more heavenly right now?

    Also one of my favorite hymns! I love the “Let us sing with one accord” part as I love the idea of all of us singing together.
