Called to Serve, 249 - Grace Gordon, alt.

 

  1. Called to serve him, heav'nly King of glory,

Chosen e'er to witness for his name,
Far and wide we tell the Father's story,

Far and wide his love proclaim.
Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;

Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;
Forward, pressing forward, as a triumph song we sing.
God our strength will be; press forward ever,

Called to serve our King.

 

  1. Called to know the richness of his blessingó

Sons and daughters, children of a King--
Glad of heart, his holy name confessing,

Praises unto him we bring.
Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;

Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;
Forward, pressing forward, as a triumph song we sing.
God our strength will be; press forward ever,

Called to serve our King.

 

 

Carry On, 255 - Ruth May Fox

1.Firm as the mountains around us,

Stalwart and brave we stand

On the rock our fathers planted

For us in this goodly land--

The rock of honor and virtue,

Of faith in the living God.

They raised his banner triumphantó

Over the desert sod.

And we hear the desert singing:

Carry on, carry on, carry on!

Hills and vales and mountains ringing:

Carry on, carry on, carry on!

Holding aloft our colors,

We march in the glorous dawn.

O youth of the noble birthright,

Carry on, carry on, carry on!

 

2.We'll build on the rock they planted

A palace to the King.

Into its shining corridors,

Our songs of praise we'll bring,

For the heritage they left us,

Not of gold or of worldly wealth,

But a blessing everlasting

Of love and joy and health.

And we hear the desert singing:

Carry on, carry on, carry on!

Hills and vales and mountains ringing:

Carry on, carry on, carry on!

Holding aloft our colors,

We march in the glorious dawn.

O youth of the noble birthright,

Carry on, carry on, carry on!

 

 

Cast Thy Burden upon the Lord, 110 - Julius Schubring; adapted from the Psalms

 

Cast thy burden upon the Lord,

And he shall sustain thee.
He never will suffer the righteous to fall.

He is at thy right hand.
Thy mercy, Lord, is great

And far above the heav'ns.
Let none be made ashamed

That wait upon thee.

 

 

Children of Our Heavenly Father, 299 - Caroline V. Sandell-Berg, trans. By Ernst W. Olson

 

1. Children of our Heav'nly Father Safely in his bosom gather;

Nestling bird nor star in heaven Such a refuge e'er was given.

 

2. Neither life nor death shall ever From the Lord his children sever;

Unto them his grace he showeth, And their sorrows all he knoweth.

 

3. Though he giveth or he taketh, God his children ne'er forsaketh;

His the loving purpose solely To preserve them pure and holy.

 

 

Choose the Right 239 - Joseph L. Townsend

  1. Choose the right when a choice is placed before you. In the right the Holy Spirit guides;
    And its light is forever shining o'er you, When in the right your heart confides.
    Choose the right! Choose the right! Let wisdom mark the way before.
    In its light, choose the right! And God will bless you evermore.

 

  1. Choose the right! Let no spirit of digression Overcome you in the evil hour.
    There's the right and the wrong to ev'ry question; Be safe thru inspiration's pow'r.
    Choose the right! Choose the right! Let wisdom mark the way before.
    In its light, choose the right! And God will bless you evermore.

 

  1. Choose the right! There is peace in righteous doing. Choose the right! There's safety for the soul.
    Choose the right in all labors you're pursuing; Let God and heaven be your goal.
    Choose the right! Choose the right! Let wisdom mark the way before.
    In its light, choose the right! And God will bless you evermore.

 

 

Christ the Lord Is Risen Today 200 - Charles Wesley

  1. Christ the Lord is ris'n today, Alleluia! Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
    Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heav'ns, and earth reply, Alleluia!

 

  1. Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight, the vict'ry won, Alleluia!
    Jesus' agony is o'er, Alleluia! Darkness veils the earth no more, Alleluia!

    Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia! Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

 

 

Come, All Whose Souls Are Lighted 268 - Reginald Heber. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. Come, all whose souls are lighted With wisdom from on high.
    Shall we, to men benighted, The lamp of life deny?
    Salvation! Oh salvation! The joyful sound proclaim,
    Till earth's remotest nation Has learned Messiah's name.

 

  1. From Greenland's icy mountains, From India's coral strand,
    Where Africa's sunny fountains Roll down their golden sand,
    From many an ancient river, From many a palmy plain,
    They call us to deliver Their land from error's chain.

 

  1. Go tell, ye winds, his story, And mighty waters, roll,
    Till, like a sea of glory, It spreads from pole to pole;
    Till o'er our ransomed nature, The Lamb for sinners slain,
    Redeemer, King, Creator, In bliss returns to reign.

 

 

Come, All Ye Saints of Zion 38 - William W. Phelps. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

  1. Come, all ye Saints of Zion, And let us praise the Lord;
    His ransomed are returning, According to his word.
    In sacred song and gladness They walk the narrow way,
    And thank the Lord who brought them To see the latter day.

 

  1. Come, ye dispersed of Judah, Join in the theme and sing
    With harmony unceasing The praises of our King,
    Whose arm is now extended, On which the world may gaze,
    To gather up the righteous In these the latter days.

 

  1. Rejoice, Rejoice, O Israel, And let your joys abound!
    The voice of God shall reach you Wherever you are found
    And call you back from bondage, That you may sing his praise
    In Zion and Jerusalem, In these the latter days.

 

  1. Then gather up for Zion, Ye Saints thruout the land,
    And clear the way before you, As God shall give command.
    Tho wicked men and devils Exert their pow'r, 'tis vain,
    Since He who is eternal Has said you shall obtain.

 

 

Come, All Ye Saints Who Dwell on Earth 65 - William W. Phelps. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

    Our great Redeemer's love to sing, And celebrate his praise,
    Our great Redeemer's love to sing, And celebrate his praise.

 

  1. His love is great; he died for us. Shall we ungrateful be,
    Since he has marked a road to bliss, And said,"Come, follow me,"
    Since he has marked a road to bliss, And said, "Come, follow me."

 

  1. The straight and narrow way we've found! Then let us travel on,
    Till we, in the celestial world, Shall meet where Christ is gone,
    Till we, in the celestial world,Shall meet where Christ is gone.

 

  1. And there we'll join the heav'nly choir And sing his praise above,
    While endless ages roll around, Perfected by his love,
    While endless ages roll around, Perfected by his love.

 

 

Come, All Ye Sons of God (Men), 322 - Thomas Davenport

 

  1. Come, all ye Sons of God who have received the priesthood;
    Go spread the gospel wide and gather in his people.
    The latter-day work has begun, To gather scattered Israel in,
    And bring them back to Zion to praise the Lamb.

 

  1. Come, all ye scattered sheep, and listen to your Shepherd,
    While you the blessings reap which long have been predicted.
    By prophets long it's been foretold, He'll gather you into his fold,
    And bring you home to Zion to praise the Lamb.

 

  1. Repent and be baptized, and have your sins remitted,
    And get the Spirit's zeal; oh, then you'll be united.
    Go cast upon him all your care; He will regard your humble prayer,
    And bring you home to Zion to praise the Lamb.

 

  1. And when your grief is o'er and ended your affliction,
    Your spirits then will soar to await the Resurrection;
    And then his presence you'll enjoy, In heav'nly bliss your time employ,
    A thousand years in Zion to praise the Lamb.

 

 

Come Along, Come Along, 244 - William Willes

 

  1. "Come along, come along" is the call that will win, To lead us to virtue and keep us from sin;
    Most men can be led, but few can be driv'n In shunning perdition and striving for heav'n
    "Come along, come along" is the call that will win In leading to virtue and keeping from sin;
    "Come along, come along" is the call that will win In leading to virtue and keeping from sin.

 

  1. Come to me, come to me" sweetly falls on the ear, The word of the Lord full of comfort and cheer,
    To bind up the broken, the captive set free, In the good time that's coming, we hope soon to see.
    "Come along, come along" is the call that will win In leading to virtue and keeping from sin;
    "Come along, come along" is the call that will win In leading to virtue and keeping from sin.

 

  1. Let us govern by kindness and never by force, All cheering and bright, like the sun in its course;
    Obedience will spring from each heart with a bound, And brotherhood flourish the wide world around.
    "Come along, come along" is the call that will win In leading to virtue and keeping from sin;
    "Come along, come along" is the call that will win In leading to virtue and keeping from sin.

 

 

Come Away to the Sunday School, 276 - Robert B. Baird

 

  1. When the rosy light of morning Softly beams above the hill,
    And the birds, sweet heav'nly songsters, Ev'ry dell with music fill,
    Fresh from slumber we awaken; Sunshine chases clouds away.
    Nature breathes her sweetest fragrance On the holy Sabbath day.

 

  1. For a good and glorious purpose Thus we meet each Sabbath day,
    Each one striving for salvation Thru the Lord's appointed way.
    Earnest toil will be rewarded; Zealous hearts need not repine.
    God will not withhold his blessings From the eager, seeking mind.

 

  1. Let us then press boldly onward, Prove ourselves as soldiers true.
    He will lead us, he will guide us. Come, there's work for all to do,
    Never tiring, never doubting, Boldly struggling to the end.
    In the world, tho foes assail us, God will surely be our friend.

 

 

Come, Come Ye Saints, 30 - William Clayton

 

  1. Come, come, ye Saints, no toil nor labor fear; But with joy wend your way.
    Though hard to you this journey may appear, Grace shall be as your day.
    'Tis better far for us to strive Our useless cares from us to drive;
    Do this, and joy your hearts will swell-- All is well! All is well!

 

  1. Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard? 'Tis not so; all is right.
    Why should we think to earn a great reward If we now shun the fight?
    Gird up your loins; fresh courage take. Our God will never us forsake;
    And soon we'll have this tale to tell--All is well! All is well!

 

  1. We'll find the place which God for us prepared, Far away in the West,
    Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid; There the Saints will be blessed.
    We'll make the air with music ring, Shout praises to our God and King;
    Above the rest these words we'll tell--All is well! All is well!

 

  1. And should we die before our journey's through, Happy day! All is well!
    We then are free from toil and sorrow, too; With the just we shall dwell!
    But if our lives are spared again To see the Saints their rest obtain,
    Oh how we'll make this chorus swell--All is well! All is well!

 

 

Come, Follow Me, 116 - John Nicholson

 

  1. "Come follow me," the Savior said. Then let us in his footsteps tread,
    For thus alone can we be one With God's own loved, begotten Son.

 

  1. "Come follow me," a simple phrase Yet truth's sublime, effulgent rays
    Are in these simple words combined To urge, inspire the human mind.

 

  1. Is it enough alone to know That we must follow him below,
    While trav'ling thru this vale of tears? No, this extends to holier spheres.

 

  1. Not only shall we emulate His course while in this earthly state,
    But when we're freed from present cares, If with our Lord we would be heirs.

 

  1. We must the onward path pursue As wider fields expand to view,
    And follow him unceasingly, Whate'er our lot or sphere may be.

 

  1. For thrones, dominions, kingdoms, pow'rs, And glory great and bliss are ours,
    If we, throughout eternity, Obey his words, "Come, follow me."

 

 

Come, Let Us Anew, 217 - Charles Wesley

 

  1. Come, let us anew our journey pursue,

Roll round with the year,

And never stand still til the Master appear.
His adorable will let us gladly fulfill,

And our talents improve
By the patience of hope and the labor of love,

By the patience of hope and the labor love.

 

  1. Our life as a dream, our time as a stream

Glide swiftly away,

And the fugitive moment refuses to stay;
For the arrow is flown and the moments are gone.

The millennial year
Presses on to our view, and eternity's here,

Presses on to our view, and eternity's here.

 

  1. Oh, that each in the day of His coming may say,

"I have fought my way thru;

I have finished the work thou didst give me to do."
Oh, that each from his Lord

may receive the glad word:

"Well and faithfully done;
Enter into my joy and sit down on my throne;

Enter into my joy and sit down on my throne."

 

 

Come, Let Us Sing an Evening Hymn, 167 - William W. Phelps. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

    And each one try, with single eye, To praise the Savior best.

 

  1. Yea, let us sing a sacred song To close the passing day,
    With one accord call on the Lord, And ever watch and pray.

 

  1. Oh, thank the Lord for grace and gifts Renewed in latter days,
    For truth and light to guide us right In wisdom's pleasant ways.

  1. For ev'ry line we have received To turn our hearts above,
    For ev'ry word and ev'ry good That fill our souls with love.

 

 

Come, Listen to a Prophet's Voice, 21 - Joseph S. Murdock. Verse four, Bruce R. McConkie.

1.Come, listen to a prophet's voice, And hear the word of God,

And in the way of truth rejoice, And sing for joy aloud.

We've found the way the prophets went Who lived in days of yore.

Another prophet now is sent This knowledge to restore.

 

2.The gloom of sullen darkness spread Thru earth's extended space

Is banished by our living Head, And God has shown his face.

Thru erring schemes in days now past The world has gone astray;

Yet Saints of God have found at last The straight and narrow way.

 

3.'Tis not in man they put their trust, Nor on his arm rely.

Full well assured, all are accursed Who Jesus Christ deny.

The Savior to his people saith, "Let all my words obey,

And signs shall follow living faith, Down to the latest day."

 

4.Then heed the words of truth and light That flow from fountains pure.

Yea, keep His law with all thy might Till thine election's sure,

Till thou shalt hear the holy voice Assure eternal reign,

While joy and cheer attend thy choice, As one who shall obtain.

 

 

Come, O Thou King of Kings, 59 - Parley P. Pratt

 

  1. Come, O thou King of Kings! We've waited long for thee,
    With healing in thy wings To set thy people free.
    Come, thou desire of nations, come; Let Israel now be gathered home.

 

  1. Come, make an end to sin And cleanse the earth by fire,
    And righteousness bring in, That Saints may tune the lyre
    With songs of joy, a happier strain To welcome in thy peaceful reign.

 

  1. Hosannas now shall sound From all the ransomed throng,
    And glory echo round A new triumphal song;
    The wide expanse of heaven fill With anthems sweet from Zion's hill.

 

  1. Hail! Prince of life and peace! Thrice welcome to thy throne!
    While all the chosen race Their Lord and Savior own,
    The heathen nations bow the knee And ev'ry tongue sounds praise to thee.

Come unto Him, 114 - Theodore E. Curtis

  1. I wander through the still of night, When solitude is ev'rywhere--
    Alone, beneath the starry light, And yet I know that God is there.
    I kneel upon the grass and pray; An answer comes without a voice.
    It takes my burden all away And makes my aching heart rejoice.

 

  1. When I am filled with strong desire And ask a boon of him, I see
    No miracle of living fire, But what I ask flows into me.
    And when the tempest rages high I feel no arm around me thrust,
    But ev'ry storm goes rolling by When I repose in him my trust.

  1. It matters not what may befall, What threat'ning hand hangs over me;
    He is my rampart through it all, My refuge from mine enemy.
    Come unto him all ye depressed, Ye erring souls whose eyes are dim,
    Ye weary ones who long for rest. Come unto him! Come unto him!

    His love will find you and gently lead you From darkest night into day.

 

  1. Come unto Jesus; He'll surely hear you, If you in meekness plead for his love.
    Oh, know you not that angels are near you From brightest mansions above?

 

  1. Come unto Jesus from ev'ry nation, From ev'ry land and isle of the sea.
    Unto the high and Lowly in station, Ever he calls, "Come to me."

  1. Let those refuse to sing Who never knew our God,
    But servants of the heav'nly King May speak their joys abroad.

 

  1. The God who rules on high, And all the earth surveys--
    Who rides upon the stormy sky And calms the roaring seasó

    He will send down his heav'nly pow'rs To carry us above.

    Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying, "Earth has no sorrow that heav'n cannot cure."

    First the blade, and then the ear, Then the full corn shall appear.
    Lord of harvest, grant that we Wholesome grain and pure may be.

    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your blessings; See what God hath done.
    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.

 

  1. Are you ever burdened with a load of care? Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
    County your many blessings; ev'ry doubt will fly, And you will be singing as the days go by.
    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your blessings; See what God hath done.
    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.

 

  1. When you look at others with their lands and gold, Think that Christ has promised you his wealth untold.
    Count your many blessings; money cannot buy Your reward in heaven nor your home on high.
    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your blessings; See what God hath done.
    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.

 

  1. So amid the conflict, whether great or small, Do not be discouraged; God is over all.
    Count your many blessings; angels will attend, Help and comfort give you to your journey's end.
    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your blessings; See what God hath done.
    Count your blessings; Name them one by one. Count your many blessings; See what God hath done.
