"Come Come Ye Saints" as written by Stanley Marvin Clarke, Arthur Seymor Sullivan and Sabine Baring-gould....
Come, come, ye saints, no toil nor labor fear;
But with joy, wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
’Tis better far for us to strive
Our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this, and joy your hearts will swell
All is well! All is well!

Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
’Tis not so, all is right.
Why should we think to earn a great reward,
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take;
Our God will never us forsake,
And soon we’ll have this tale to tell,
All is well! All is well!

We’ll find the place which God for us prepared,
Far away in the West,
Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid;
There the saints will be blessed.
We’ll make the air with music ring,
Shout praises to our God and King;
Above the rest these words we’ll tell,
All is well! All is well!

And should we die before our journey’s through,
Happy day! All is well!
We then are free from toil and sorrow, too;
With the just we shall dwell!
But if our lives are spared again
To see the saints their rest obtain,
O how we’ll make this chorus swell,
All is well! All is well!

    General CommentOnly one Motab song? Come, come ye saints is a good one which refers to the mormon pioneers as they trekked across the west about being driven out by the United States. Life was tough and it was easy to give up, but with a positive attitude including the hope that everything will work out eventually, they made it. The song applies to all of us. While their's was an actual journey, we all are on a metaphorical journey through life and if we keep the positive attitude through the hard times and understand that if we do our best, things will work out, then we will make it through this difficult life.
