Ye Children of Our God (Choir)

Hymns (1948, 1979), no. 288

1. Ye children of our God, Ye Saints of latter days, Surround the table of our Lord, Surround the table of our Lord, And join to sing his praise, And join to sing his praise.

2. He gives his flesh and blood, Our souls to purify, And blesses us with every good, And blesses us with every good, And thus he brings us nigh, And thus he brings us nigh.

3. We do remember him, His sorrow, pain, and death, And how with power he rose again, And how with power he rose again, Triumphant from the earth, Triumphant from the earth.

4. He triumphed o’er the grave And then ascended high, Where throned in power he sits to save, Where throned in power he sits to save And bring the sinner nigh, And bring the sinner nigh.

5. He soon will come again, And with his people taste The marriage supper of the Lamb, The marriage supper of the Lamb, With his own presence blest, With his own presence blest.

6. Arrayed in spotless white, We’ll then each other greet, And see Messiah throned in might, And see Messiah throned in might, And worship at his feet, And worship at his feet.
