OGDEN — The community is invited to "An Evening of Music," set for one hour beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 8, at the Ogden LDS Tabernacle, 2145 Washington Blvd.

The free “evening of sacred music” will feature more than 120 members of the Ogden LDS Institute at Weber State University, according to a news release from the institute.

A spirit-oriented devotional, the performance will pay tribute to the Savior in word and song, the news release said.

“The focus of this program is to share that no matter what anyone of us has been through, the Savior is always calling us to come to him,” said Alan Saunders, an Institute choir director.

As referenced in the hymn “Come unto Jesus,” Saunders quoted one theme in the devotional, "Ever he calls, come to me."

“The program portrays that the Savior extends his generous invitation simply because he loves us and he knows we need him because we all make mistakes,” Saunders said.

The devotional will highlight the institute’s singers and choir.

Also performing will be small ensembles and instrumental accompaniment.

Spoken words will be from the scriptures and words of the prophets, said the news release.

Hymns and songs to be performed include “Savior Redeemer of My Soul,” “Come Unto Him,” “One by One” (written by LDS Apostle Elder David A. Bednar and Paul Cardall), “Be Thou Humble,” “I Am a Child of God,” “I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus,” and a new rendition of “God So Loved the World.”

Two ensembles will perform “Have I Done Any Good” and “Our Savior's Love.”
