When He Cometh
Hymn Arrangement by Mary Katherine May
of Quality Music and Books
I was inspired to compose this arrangement of When He Cometh during a potluck supper and hymn sing we hosted at our home on July 4, 2010, when Carol Nelson, wife of Pastor Bud Nelson (Community Missionary), requested it be sung as it reminded her of the hymns sung when she was a child.
There are many hymns designated over the years as children's hymns, when they are also a blessing and inspiration, teaching God's Word, to adults as well. I think it important to remember that in God's eyes we are all children. I recall from my time as a music director in churches how enthusiastically Jesus Loves Me was always sung, yet it is rarely used during worship services.
This arrangement is scored for the following instruments.
