"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

Return with Honor

I wonder if the act of sending a son on a mission is similar to our Father in Heaven's experience of sending His children to Earth. "Return with Honor" expresses this sentiment.

Lyrics
Return with Honor
As a spirit child of a loving God,
You were called into your Father's arms one day.
The time had come to leave your Heavenly home,
And dangers would lurk along the way.
"Always remember," your Father said,
"That I will be there by your side,
And when your work is finished, if you have done your best,
You'll return home sanctified.

Go into the world, my child,
Your mission to fulfill,
And when your work is finished,
You'll return with honor,
Return with honor,
For you've magnified your Father's will."

When you were an infant, I held you close.
I would often see a look pass o'er your face.
It seemed as though you were remembering
A memory time had not erased.
Visions of Heaven, perhaps you saw,
Recalling a scene from before,
And did you feel your Father embrace you once again?
Did you hear His words once more?

"Go into the world, my child,
Your mission to fulfill,
And when your work is finished,
You'll return with honor,
Return with honor,
For you've magnified your Father's will."

Now I see before me a man grown strong.
You've replaced the tiny baby of yesterday.
The time has come to leave your earthly home,
And dangers will lurk along the way.
Always remember, beloved son,
Your Father will be by your side,
And when your work is finished, if you have done your best,
You'll return home satisfied.

Go into the world, my son,
Your mission to fulfill,
And when your work is finished,
You'll return with honor,
Return with honor,
For you've magnified your Father's will.
