Come Lord Jesus (Come and be born in our hearts)

This is a simple children's hymn for Advent.

It was written by American Roman Catholic liturgical musician and songwriter Carey Landry (b 1944), and included in his album "Hi God 2".

Many people have added additional verses, eg  "Come and pray with us", "Maranatha" etc.

The song is set to an unnamed tune, also by Landry. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of D, the first few notes of the melody are D_ E FE D E_ F GA E
