Come Again! A Return to Church Anthem

Come Again!: Original Lyrics

(Sopranos, optional solo): Come again! Come again!
From the hills and the riverside.
Come again! Come again!
Bring your daughters and sons!
For the words of the true song are sung as they ever were
And the Lord is alive, and the dance has begun!

(All:) Come again! Come again!
Welcome all! Welcome everyone!
Come again! Come again!
Bring your faith and goodwill.
For the words of the Good Book are great as they ever were
And the Lord is alive, and the dance has begun!

(All, with soprano descant:) Come again! And again!
Welcome all! Welcome everyone!
Come again! And again!
To the heart of great joy!
For the Word is sung the same as it ever was,
And the Lord is alive, and the dance has begun!

General Information

This piece was written in February 2011, for a friend who wanted a short and positive anthem encouraging people to return to church (pretty obviously).

It is an easy sing, and very approachable for audience and choir alike.
