Beauty in All Things

 
 
 
Come Lord Jesus great Redeemer,
Light of morning from the east.
We will be thy children ever
Dry our tears, all weeping cease.
Come in glory to the earth
Come to us to rule and reign.
Ready us to kneel and greet thee,
Come, Lord Jesus come.
 
Jesus, once of humble birth,
Now in glory comes to earth.
Once he suffered grief and pain;
Now he comes on earth to reign.
Now he comes on earth to reign.
 
 
Come Lord Jesus Come!
 
 
This is the finale in the show Savior of the World.
All the actors gathered on stage and sang the above song.
Some of the little children climbed onto a mountain and joined the apostles.
The apostle Peter stands at the top of the mountain and Bria was held in his arms.
Bria then raises her hand and points to heaven as we joined her in looking to heaven.
 Tears ran down my face when I looked up and witnessed this sight as we all sang,
 
Come Lord Jesus Come!
 
This was not planned by the director.
He was not aware of Bria's hand but God is.
I find this a beautiful representation of all of us.
Bria has a noticeable need for the return of our Savior.
Yet, all of us need his atoning power and the gift of the resurrection.
 
 
Come Lord Jesus Come!
