1. Come, all ye sons of God who have received the priesthood;
Go spread the gospel wide and gather in his people.
The latter-day work has begun:
To gather scattered Israel in
And bring them back to Zion to praise the Lamb.

2. Come, all ye scattered sheep, and listen to your Shepherd,
While you the blessings reap which long have been predicted.
By prophets long it’s been foretold:
He’ll gather you into his fold
And bring you home to Zion to praise the Lamb.

3. Repent and be baptized, and have your sins remitted,
And get the Spirit’s zeal; oh, then you’ll be united.
Go cast upon him all your care;
He will regard your humble prayer
And bring you home to Zion to praise the Lamb.

4. And when your grief is o’er and ended your affliction,
Your spirits then will soar to await the Resurrection;
And then his presence you’ll enjoy,
In heav’nly bliss your time employ,
A thousand years in Zion to praise the Lamb.

Orson Pratt Huish (September 5, 1851 – December 4, 1932) was a Latter Day Saint hymnwriter. He wrote the words and music to “Come Unto Jesus”, as well as a few other hymns found in the 1985 English edition of the hymnal of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[1] His hymns have been widely sung by many choirs in many locations.

Huish wrote a total of more than 300 songs, most of which are unpublished. In the 1948 LDS Church hymnal three of his works were included. These were “Come Unto Jesus”,[8] “Jesus, My Savior True, Guide Me to Thee” and “Utah, the Queen of the West”. In the 1985 English hymnal only the first two of these hymns were retained. However, the hymn “Come All Ye Sons Of God” (hymn #322) has music by Huish and was in both the 1948 and 1985 hymnals.[9]

Other noted works by Huish are the Payson High School song, “The Silver and Green” and the funeral hymn, “Blessed Are the Dead”.

Huish’s music remains widely available, both on its own and in medlies.[10]
