Song 128 – April 6th

By May 8, 2018Songs

This Song is referenced by Song 112 – Reckless and provides the music for Psalm 15. The theme of this song is Christ’s birth. April 6th, 1830 was the date The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was organized. D&C 20:1 states this date is “one thousand eight hundred and thirty years since the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the Flesh.” Thus, this date is generally accepted as the birthday of Jesus by members of the LDS church. Our Savior’s birth is the hidden message behind this song. The painting to the left was made in 1306 AD and is titled “Adoration of the Magi” by Giotto. The painting is a fresco (200 x 185 cm) located in the Scrovegni Chapel, also known as the Arena Chapel, which is a church in Padua, Veneto, Italy. The work is linked to Matthew 2:11. The comet in the sky is probably Halley’s Comet, which Giotto may have seen when it passed Earth in 1301. When you look at the art masterpieces across the ages, it is amazing how many are about “The Adoration of …”. It is not part of our lives to realize while we are living the things which come from the seeds we plant. Rather, it is in the Lord’s hands, especially if we are striving our best to follow the directions of His spirit and The Holy Ghost.
