Celebrating Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month #7

"Come Back Quickly to the Lord," words by Young Taik Chun, 1943; music by Jae Hoon Park, 1943. Korean title: Uhsuh-do-oh rah-oh-oh.

Based on the Prodigal Son parable in Luke 15:11-32, "Come Back Quickly to the Lord" was written during World War II by Young Taik Chun, Korean Methodist Church pastor and editor of the Korean Christian Literature Society. During a visit in 1943, the author presented the hymn, cut from his magazine, to Jae Hoon Park, who provided the music. The translation is by Sang E. Chun, the author's son, and Ivy G. Chun, the author's granddaughter.
