Hymns
« on: April 02, 2014, 05:25:41 PM »
Tonight we had the following hymn after a visiting pastor related details of his recent visit to South Sudan.

THEY shall come from the east, they shall come from the west,
and sit down in the kingdom of God;
both the rich and the poor, the despised, the distressed,
they’ll sit down in the kingdom of God.
And none will ask what they have been
provided that their robes are clean;
they shall come from the east, they shall come from the west,
and sit down in the kingdom of God.

2 They shall come from the east, they shall come from the west,
and sit down in the kingdom of God;
to be met by their Father and welcomed and blessed,
and sit down in the kingdom of God.
The black, the white, the dark, the fair,
your colour will not matter there;
they shall come from the east, they shall come from the west,
and sit down in the kingdom of God.

3 They shall come from the east, they shall come from the west,
and sit down in the kingdom of God;
out of great tribulation to triumph and rest
they’ll sit down in the kingdom of God.
From every tribe and every race,
all men as brothers shall embrace;
they shall come from the east, they shall come from the west,
and sit down in the kingdom of God.
John Gowans, b. 1934

Yes there is.  I tried copying an mp3 of the tune played on the piano, but couldn't paste it.  There are a number of versions on youtube, but they all seem to be by brass bands and those I tried did not pick up the tune very well and none sounded anything like it does played on a piano and sung.

Just found this.  Takes a while to load and wait for a while and it will play, no need to do the download.

Luke 13:29  29  And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

CHRIST is risen! Hallelujah!
risen our victorious head!
Sing His praises! Hallelujah!
Christ is risen from the dead.
Gratefully our hearts adore Him
as His light once more appears,
bowing down in joy before Him,
rising up from grief and tears.

Christ is risen! Hallelujah!
risen our victorious Head!
Sing His praises! Hallelujah!
Christ is risen from the dead.


2 Christ is risen! all the sadness
of His earthly life is o’er;
through the open gates of gladness
He returns to life once more;
death and hell before Him bending,
He is risen, the victor now,
angels on His steps attending,
glory round His wounded brow.

3 Christ is risen! henceforth never
death or hell shall us enthral;
we are Christ’s, in Him for ever
we have triumphed over all;
all the doubting and dejection
of our trembling hearts have ceased;
’tis His day of resurrection,
let us rise and keep the feast.
John Samuel Bewley Monsell, 1811-75
