Sister Wive's Song

My wife watched Sister Wive's tonight and thought the song at the end of the show was very beautiful. After a little research we were able to find the lyrics. It appears to be an updated version to an old hymn, but only one verse of the original hymn. The bold is the verse that was used during the show.

1 Verse
Songs of praise we bring to our Savior King, Who hath said " Let little
children come; For of such" said He, "Shall my kingdom be." Kingdom
of the ransomed, bathered home.

Chorus
We will sweetly sing of our Savior King, till the echoes reach the vaulted skies! To the
Lord above, Prince of Peace and love, Shall our sweetest songs of praise arise.

Lyrics by Charlotte G. Homer

2 Verse
Tho' so young and small, Jesus loves us all, And His smiling face o'er
all we see; Gently day by day, still He leads the way; Blessed 
Jesus, we will follow Thee.

Chorus
We will sweetly sing of our Savior King, till the echoes reach the vaulted skies! To the
Lord above, Prince of Peace and love, Shall our sweetest songs of praise arise.


3 Verse
Then glad songs employ, songs of praise and joy, To the Lamb who loves
children so; Let us each be true, live and serve Him too, And more
like the Master daily grow.

Chorus
We will sweetly sing of our Savior King, till the echoes reach the vaulted skies! To the
Lord above, Prince of Peace and love, Shall our sweetest songs of praise arise.

  3. It was also a song that Christine sang with her kids in an earlier episode during their evening prayer time. Possibly some significance within the Mormon faith???

  5. I've been searching for the lyrics of the updated version or even Jolene Kearns cd and haven't had any success. I don't know how to download mp3 for $0.89 so how do I find the entire cd to purchase or find the lyrics?

  7. I believe the song was released as a single...so that would be the only option to purchase it. I've not found it anywhere else.
