The Son Will Come

SATB

Words and music by Craig Petrie

 

This song expresses our need for a Savior, comparing it to the need for the sun to help a garden grow.  Just as a garden needs the sun to grow in addition to our best attempts to make it grow ourselves, we need the Savior to return to heaven in addition to our attempts to live worthy to return there.  Appropriate for Christmas, Easter, or general Sacrament Meeting use.

Father, O hear my prayer, 
Behold this spot of ground, my garden growing there; 
I've labored long to plant each precious seed,
Oh make them grow; the winter harvest we shall need.
Yet the sun has thus refused to give its light, 
And the storm, with rain and flood now threatens in its might,
What more can I do, but call on Thee? 
And in my desperate hour, thy Spirit saith to me: 
CHORUS I: 
The sun will come 
To light the way, 
To change the darkened skies
To brightest day. 
Thou hast giv'n thy part; 
What is left undone 
Is in His hands, have faith, 
God will send the sun.
Father, O hear my prayer, 
Behold this child of thine, I long for heaven there; 
I've labored on the path that leads to thee, 
How I desire to stand before thee worthily.
 
Yet on earth, my robes are darkened, stained in sin, 
How can I thy hallowed home in heaven enter in?
 
What more can I do, but call on Thee? 
And in my desperate hour, thy Spirit saith to me:
CHORUS II: 
The Son will come 
To light the way, 
To change the darkened skies
To brightest day. 
Thou hast giv'n thy part; 
What is left undone 
Is in His hands, have faith, 
God will send His Son.
With all thy mind and heart, 
Strive to do thy part. 
After all ye can do, 
God's mercy will shine though.
CHORUS II: 
The Son will come 
To light the way, 
To change the darkened sky 
To brightest day. 
Thou hast giv'n thy part; 
What is left undone 
Is in His hands, Oh have faith, 
God will send His Son.
