O Children Come


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!

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! 

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!

The Story

Originally written as a Christmas carol, this invitation song challenges us both to follow Christ and to go with the good news of Christ in words and in deeds of mercy to a needy world. We are thrilled and privileged to have the iconic Ladysmith Black Mambazo record this song with us; they have helped open world music to all of us. And, if you listen closely, you’ll hear the children of some of our band members singing along
