A Key Was Turned in Latter Days, 310 - Jan Underwood Pinborough

 

1. A key was turned in latter days, A blessing to restore--

A gift of charity and peace--To earth forevermore.

Our Father, we would turn our hearts To those who seek thy face,

Give hope and comfort to the poor In mem'ry of thy grace.

 

2. A hand of mercy we'll extend: Thy Son has shown the way.

And light and knowledge will attend Our service in his name.

O sisters, let us join our hands; We'll humbly seek his face,

Assure our hearts before our Lord By deeds of love and praise.

 

 

 

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, 68 - Martin Luther, adapted

 

A mighty fortress is our God,

A tower of strength ne'er failing.

A helper mighty is our God,

O'er ills of life prevailing.

He overcometh all.

He saveth from the Fall.

His might and pow'r are great.

He all things did create.

And he shall reign forevermore.

 

Verses from the Cyberhymnal:

 

A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.

 

Did we in our strength confide, our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God's own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.

 

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

 

That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God's truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.

 

Alternate translation:

 

A mighty fortress is our God, a trusty shield and weapon;
He helps us free from every need that hath us now overtaken.
The old evil foe now means deadly woe; deep guile and great might
Are his dread arms in fight; on Earth is not his equal.

 

With might of ours can naught be done, soon were our loss effected;
But for us fights the Valiant One, Whom God Himself elected.
Ask ye, Who is this? Jesus Christ it is.

Of Sabbath Lord, and there's none other God;
He holds the field forever.

 

Though devils all the world should fill, all eager to devour us.
We tremble not, we fear no ill, they shall not overpower us.
This world's prince may still scowl fierce as he will,
He can harm us none, he's judged; the deed is done;
One little word can fell him.

 

The Word they still shall let remain nor any thanks have for it;
He's by our side upon the plain with His good gifts and Spirit.
And take they our life, goods, fame, child and wife,
Let these all be gone, they yet have nothing won;
The Kingdom ours remaineth.

 


From the Digital Hymnal.org

 

1
A mighty fortress is our God,
a bulwark never failing;
our helper he amid the flood
of mortal ills prevaling.
For still our ancient foe
doth seek to work us woe;
his craft and power are great,
and armed with cruel hate,
on earth is not his equal.

2
Did we in our own strength confide,
our striving would be losing,
were not the right man on our side,
the man of God's own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is he;
Lord Sabbaoth, his name,
from age to age the same,
and he must win the battle.

3
And though this world, with devils filled,
should threaten to undo us,
we will not fear, for God hath willed
his truth to triumph through us.
The Prince of Darkness grim,
we tremble not for him;
his rage we can endure,
for lo, his doom is sure;
one little word shall fell him.

4
That word above all earthly powers,
no thanks to them, abideth;
the Spirit and the gifts are ours,
thru him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go,
this mortal life also;
the body they may kill;
God's truth abideth still;
his kingdom is forever.

 

 

 

A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief, 29 - James Montgomery

 

  1. A poor wayfaring Man of grief Hath often crossed me on my way,
    Who sued so humbly for relief That I could never answer nay.
    I had not pow'r to ask his name, Whereto he went, or whence he came;
    Yet there was something in his eye That won my love; I knew not why.

 

  1. Once, when my scanty meal was spread, He entered; not a word he spake,
    Just perishing for want of bread. I gave him all; he blessed it, brake,
    And ate, but gave me part a-gain. Mine was an angel's portion then,
    For while I fed with eager haste, The crust was manna to my taste.

 

  1. I spied him where a fountain burst Clear from the rock; his strength was gone.
    The heedless water mocked his thirst; He heard it, saw it hurrying on.
    I ran and raised the suff'rer up; Thrice from the stream he drained my cup,
    Dipped and returned it running o'er; I drank and never thirsted more.

 

  1. 'Twas night; the floods were out; it blew A winter hurricane aloof.
    I heard his voice abroad and flew To bid him welcome to my roof.
    I warmed and clothed and cheered my guest And laid him on my couch to rest;
    Then made the earth my bed, and seemed In Eden's garden while I dreamed.

 

  1. Stripped, wounded, beaten nigh to death, I found him by the highway side.
    I roused his pulse, brought back his breath, Revived his spirit, and supplied
    Wine, oil, refreshment--he was healed. I had myself a wound concealed,
    But from that hour forgot the smart, And peace bound up my broken heart.

 

  1. In pris'n I saw him next, condemned To meet a traitor's doom at morn.
    The tide of lying tongues I stemmed, And honored him 'mid shame and scorn.
    My friendship's utmost zeal to try, He asked if I for him would die.
    The flesh was weak; my blood ran chill, But my free spirit cried, "I will!"

 

  1. Then in a moment to my view The stranger started from disguise.
    The tokens in his hands I knew; The Savior stood before mine eyes.
    He spake, and my poor name he named, "Of me thou hast not been ashamed.
    These deeds shall thy memorial be; Fear not, thou didst them unto me."

Abide with Me! 166 - Henry F. Lyte

 

  1. Abide with me! fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens. Lord, with me abide!
    When other helpers fail and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me!

 

  1. Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day. Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away.
    Change and decay in all around I see; O thou who changest not, abide with me!

 

  1. I need thy presence ev'ry passing hour. What but thy grace can foil the tempter's pow'r?
    Who, like thyself, my guide and stay can be? Thru cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me!

 

Verses from The Cyber Hymnal

 

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

 

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

 

Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word;
But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.

 

Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings,
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea-
Come, Friend of sinners, and thus bide with me.

 

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile;
And, though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee,
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.

 

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

 

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

 

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

 

 

 

Abide with Me; 'Tis Eventide, 165 - Lowrie M. Hofford

 

  1. Abide with me, 'tis eventide. The day is past and gone;
    The shadows of the evening fall; The night is coming on.
    Within my heart a welcome guest, Within my home abide.
    O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.
    O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.

 

  1. Abide with me; 'tis eventide. Thy walk today with me
    Has made my heart within me burn, As I communed with thee.
    Thy earnest words have filled my soul And kept me near thy side.
    O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.
    O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.

 

  1. Abide with me, 'tis eventide, And lone will be the night
    If I cannot commune with thee, Nor find in thee my light.
    The darkness of the world, I fear, Would in my home abide.
    O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.
    O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.

 

Verses from The Cyber Hymnal

 

Abide with me, 'tis eventide!
The day is past and gone;
The shadows of the evening fall;
The night is coming on!
Within my heart a welcome Guest,
Within my home abide.

 

Refrain:

O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide!
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide!

 

Abide with me, 'tis eventide!
Thy walk today with me
Has made my heart within me burn,
As I communed with Thee.
Thy earnest words have filled my soul
And kept me near Thy side.

 

Refrain

 

Abide with me, 'tis eventide!
And lone will be the night,
If I cannot commune with Thee,
Nor find in Thee my light.
The darkness of the world, I fear,
Would in my home abide.

Adam-ondi-Ahman, 49 - William W. Phelps, included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. This earth was once a garden place,

With all her glories common,
And men did live a holy race,

And worship Jesus face to face,

In Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

  1. We read that Enoch walked with God,

Above the pow'r of mammon,
While Zion spread herself abroad,

And Saints and angels sang aloud,

In Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

  1. Her land as good and greatly blest,

Beyond all Israel's Canaan;
Her fame was known from east to west,

Her peace was great, and pure the rest

of Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

  1. Hosanna to such days to come,

The Savior's second coming,
When all the earth in glorious bloom

Affords the Saints a holy home,

Like Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

Adam-ondi-Ahman, 49 - W. W. Phelps. Messenger and Advocate vol. 1 no. 9, June 1835), 144. Messenger and Advocate, 1835 1985 Hymns

 

This world was once a garden place,
With all her glories common;
And men did live a holy race,
And worship Jesus face to face,
In Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

We read that Enoch walk'd with God,
Above the power of Mammon:
While Zion spread herself abroad,
And saints and angels sung aloud
In Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

Her land was good and greatly blest
Beyond old Israel's Canaan;
Her fame was great, and pure the rest-
Of Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

Hosanna to such days to come-
The Savior's second comin'-
Afford the saints a holy home
Like Adam-ondi-Ahman.

 

 

 

Again, Our Dear Redeeming Lord, 179 - Theodore E. Curtis

 

  1. Again, our dear redeeming Lord, We meet in thy beloved name,
    While from the fountains of thy love Thy Spirit kindles like a flame.
    For all the anguish of thy soul, For thy great gift so full and free,
    With grateful hearts all penitent, Dear Lord, we do remember thee.

 

  1. In token of thy bleeding flesh And of thy blood so freely spent,
    We meet around thy table now And take thy holy sacrament.
    We seek thy pardon, dearest Lord, And may thy favor, too, be sent,
    While in our hearts we turn to thee, Renewed in faith and covenant.

 

 

 

Again We Meet Around the Board, 186 - Eliza R. Snow

 

  1. Again we meet around the board

Of Jesus, our redeeming Lord,
With faith in his atoning blood,

Our only access unto God.

 

  1. He left his Father's courts on high,

With man to live, for man to die,
A world to purchase and to save

And seal a triumph o'er the grave.

 

  1. Help us, O God, to realize

The great atoning sacrifice,
The gift of thy beloved Son,

The Prince of Life, the Holy One.

 

  1. Oh, bless us, Lord, for Jesus' sake,

That we may worthily partake
These emblems of thy flesh and blood

Of our Redeemer, Savior, God.

America the Beautiful,.338 - Katherine Lee Bates

 

  1. Oh, beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain,
    For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!
    America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea

 

  1. Oh, beautiful for pilgrim feet, Whose stern, impassioned stress
    A thoroughfare of freedom beat Across the wilderness!
    America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
    Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law.

 

  1. Oh, beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
    Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life!
    America! America! May God thy gold refine,
    Till all success be nobleness, And ev'ry gain divine.

 

  1. Oh, beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years
    Thine alabaster cities gleam, Undimmed by human tears!

    And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea.

O beautiful for halcyon skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the enameled plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till souls wax fair as earth and air
And music-hearted sea!

O beautiful for pilgrims feet,
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America ! America !
God shed his grace on thee
Till paths be wrought through
wilds of thought
By pilgrim foot and knee!

O beautiful for glory-tale
Of liberating strife
When once and twice, for man's avail
Men lavished precious life !
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till selfish gain no longer stain
The banner of the free!

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
Till nobler men keep once again
Thy whiter jubilee!

 

 

 

An Angel from on High, 13 - Parley P. Pratt

 

  1. An angel from on high The long, long silence broke;
    Descending from the sky, These gracious words he spoke:
    Lo! in Cumorah's lonely hill A sacred record lies concealed.
    Lo! in Cumorah's lonely hill A sacred record lies concealed.

 

  1. Sealed by Moroni's hand, It has for ages lain
    To wait the Lord's command, From dust to speak again.
    It shall again to light come forth To usher in Christ's reign on earth.
    It shall again to light come forth To usher in Christ's reign on earth.

 

  1. It speaks of Joseph's seed And makes the remnant known
    Of nations long since dead, Who once had dwelt alone.
    The fullness of the gospel, too, Its pages will reveal to view.
    The fullness of the gospel, too, Its pages will reveal to view.

 

  1. The time is now fulfilled, The long-expected day;
    Let earth obedience yield And darkness flee away.
    Remove the seals; be wide unfurled Its light and glory to the world
    Remove the seals; be wide unfurled Its light and glory to the world.

 

  1. Lo! Israel filled with joy Shall now be gathered home,
    Their wealth and means employ To build Jerusalem,
    While Zion shall arise and shine And fill the earth with truth divine,
    While Zion shall arise and shine And fill the earth with truth divine.

  1. Thru painful tribulation We walk the narrow road
    And battle with temptation To gain that blest abode.
    But patient, firm endurance, With glory in our view,
    The Spirit's bright assurance Will bring us conq'rors through.

    With all the just to gather, And thy salvation see!
    Then, with the hosts of heaven, We'll sing th' immortal theme:
    To him be glory given, Whose blood did us redeem.

    Let ev'ry people hear And learn thy holy ways.
    Reign, mighty God, assert thy cause, And govern by thy righteous laws.

 

  1. Put forth thy glorious pow'r, That Gentiles all may see,
    And earth present her store In converts born to thee.
    O Lord, our God, thy Church so bless, And fill the world with righteousness.

 

  1. To God, the only wise, The one immortal King,
    Let hallelujahs rise From ev'ry living thing;
    Let all that breathe, on ev'ry coast, Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

As Now We Take the Sacrament 169 - Lee Tom Perry

 

1.  As now we take the sacrament, Our thoughts are turned to thee,

Thou Son of God, who lived for us, Then died on Calvary.

We contemplate thy lasting grace, Thy boundless charity;

To us the gift of life was giv'n For all eternity.

 

2.  As now our minds review the past, We know we must repent;

The way to thee is righteousness--The way thy life was spent.

Forgiveness is a gift from thee We seek with pure intent.

With hands now pledged to do thy work, We take the sacrament.

 

3.  As now we praise thy name with song, The blessings of this day

Will linger in our thankful hearts, And silently we pray

For courage to accept thy will, To listen and obey,

We love thee, Lord; our hearts are full. We'll walk thy chosen way.

As Sisters in Zion, 309 - Emily H. Woodmansee

    To do whatsoever is gentle and human, To cheer and to bless in humanity's name.

 

  1. How vast is our purpose, how broad is our mission, If we but fulfill it in spirit and deed.
    Oh, naught but the Spirit's divinest tuition Can give us the wisdom to truly succeed.

    So the people shall adore thee And confess the joyful sound.

As the evening round them flows.

Lord, accept our supplications;

Be with us in our repose.

With promise shining in our eyes, Resolved to do our part.

Upon a noble past we build; The future fills our view.

We face the challenge of our day And pledge we will be true.

 

2.  The truths and values we embrace Are mocked on ev'ry hand.

Yet as we listen and obey We know we can withstand

The evils that would weaken us, The sin that would destroy.

With faith, we hold the iron rod And find in this our joy.

 

3.  Thru test and trial we'll have our fears, But we will not despair.

We're here to serve a righteous cause; Truth gives us strength to dare.

We'll love, and learn, and overcome; We'll sing a joyful song,

As Zion's youth in latter days, Triumphant, pure, and strong.

 

 

 

Awake and Arise, 8 - Theodore E. Curtis

 

1.  Awake and arise, O ye slumbering nations!

The heavens have opened their portals again.

The last and the greatest of all dispensations

Has burst like a dawn o'er the children of men!

 

2.  The dream of the poet, the crown of the ages,

The time which the prophets of Israel foretold,

That glorious day only dreamed by the sages

Is yours, O ye slumbering nations; Behold!

 

3.  Oh, lift up your voices in song and in story.

Let banners of peace in all lands be unfurled,

For truth, heavenborn, in its beauty and glory

Is marching triumphantly over the world.

 

 

 

Awake, Ye Saints of God, Awake!, 17 - Eliza R. Snow

 

  1. Awake, ye Saints of God, awake! Call on the Lord in mighty prayer
    That he will Zion's bondage break And bring to naught the tempter's snare,
    And bring to naught the tempter's snare.

 

  1. Tho Zion's foes have counseled deep, Although they bind with fetters strong,
    The God of Jacob does not sleep; His vengeance will not slumber long;
    His vengeance will not slumber long.

 

  1. With constant faith and fervent prayer, With deep humility of soul,
    With steadfast mind and heart, prepare To see th' eternal purpose roll,
    To see th' eternal purpose roll.

 

  1. Awake to righteousness; be one, Or, saith the Lord, "Ye are not mine!"
    Yea, like the Father and the Son, Let all the Saints in union Join.
    Let all the Saints in union Join.

 

 

 

Away in a Manger, 206 - Anonymous

 

  1. Away in a manger, no crib for his bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head;
    The stars in the heavens looked down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.

 

  1. The cattle are lowing, the poor baby wakes; But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes.
    I love thee, Lord Jesus; look down from the sky And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

 

  1. Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.
    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care, And fit us for heaven to live with thee there.
