Come and See

This was the theme song for the 2012 Kennewick Stake Relief Society Choir. It is based on thoughts expressed in Elder Patrick Kearon's December 2011 Ensign article entitled, "Come Let Us Adore Him." Fast and fun, it expresses the feeling of haste the shepherds exemplified when they heard the tidings of Christ's birth as well as the call of invitation extended by the angels, and by all of Christ's servants to all who will hear. Come and see!

Special thanks to the 2012 Kennewick Stake Relief Society Choir for the recording here.

LYRICS

Good tidings of joy abound.
The angels are all around us rejoicing,
The day long foretold has arrived at last.
The time of rejoicing is never past.
Come witness Messiah's resplendent day,
Come with us and see where He lay.

Come and see,
Come and see!
Come witness the miracle born on this day.
Make haste as you travel and do not delay.
Come savor the light that ascended this morn.
Come and see, Christ the Lord is born.

Go carry the word abroad.
He has come the beloved Son of God.
The Light that was promised shines bright today.
The heavens have opened and shown us the way.
Come witness Messiah's triumphant morn.
The Savior, hosanna, is born.

Come and see,
Come and see!
Come witness the miracle born on this day.
Make haste as you travel and do not delay.
Come savor the light that ascended this morn.
Come and see, Christ the Lord is born.

Come and see,
He lives today.
Come and hear His word.
The clear, pure hope of the Light of the World,
Come and see!
Come and see!

Come and see,
Come and see!
Come witness the miracle born on this day.
Make haste as you travel and do not delay.
Come savor the light that ascended this morn.
Come and see, Christ the Lord!
Come and see, Christ the Lord is born.
