Gently Raise the Sacred Strain, 146 - William W. Phelps. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

  1. Gently raise the sacred strain, For the Sabbath's come again
    That man may rest, That man may rest, And return his thanks to God
    For his blessings to the blest, For his blessings to the blest.

 

  1. Holy day, devoid of strife-- Let us seek eternal life,
    That great reward, That great reward, And partake the sacrament
    In remembrance of our Lord, In remembrance of our Lord.

 

  1. Sweetly swells the solemn sound While we bring our gifts around
    Of broken hearts, Of broken hearts, As a willing sacrifice,
    Showing what his grace imparts, Showing what his grace imparts.

 

  1. Holy, holy is the Lord. Precious, precious is his word:
    Repent and live, Repent and live; Tho your sins be crimson red,
    Oh, repent, and he'll forgive. Oh, repent, and he'll forgive.

 

 

Glorious Things Are Sung of Zion, 48 - William W. Phelps

  1. Glorious things are sung of Zion, Enoch's city seen of old,
    Where the righteous, being perfect, Walked with God in streets of gold.
    Love and virtue, faith and wisdom, Grace and gifts were all combined.
    As himself each loved his neighbor; All were one in heart and mind.

 

  1. There they shunn'd the pow'r of Satan And observed celestial laws;
    For in Adam-ondi-Ahman Zion rose where Eden was.
    When beyond the pow'r of evil, So that none could covet wealth,
    One continual feast of blessings Crown'd their days with peace and health.

 

  1. Then the tow'rs of Zion glittered Like the sun in yonder skies,
    And the wicked stood and trembled, Filled with wonder and surprise.
    Then their faith and works were perfect; Lo, they followed their great Head!
    So the city went to heaven, And the world said, "Zion's fled!"

 

  1. When the Lord returns with Zion, And we hear the watchman cry,
    Then we'll surely be united, And we'll all see eye to eye.
    Then we'll mingle with the angels, And the Lord will bless his own.
    Then the earth will be as Eden, And we'll know as we are known.

 

 

Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken, 46 - John Newton. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. Glorious things of thee are spoken, Zion, city of our God!
    He whose word cannot be broken Chose thee for his own abode.
    on the Rock of Ages founded, What can shake our sure repose?
    With salvation's wall surrounded, Thou may'st smile on all thy foes.

 

  1. See! the streams of living waters, Springing from celestial love,
    Well supply thy sons and daughters And all fear of drought remove.
    Round each habitation hov'ring, See the cloud and fire appear
    For a glory and a cov'ring, Showing that the Lord is near.

 

  1. Blest inhabitants of Zion, Purchased by the Savior's blood;
    Jesus, whom their souls rely on, Makes them kings and priests to God.
    While in love his Saints he raises With himself to reign as King,
    All, as priests, his solemn praises For thank-off'rings freely bring.

 

 

Glory to God on High, 67 - James Allen, alt.

 

  1. Glory to God on high! Let heav'n and earth reply. Praise ye his name.
    His love and grace adore, Who all our sorrows bore. Sing aloud evermore: Worthy the Lamb!

 

  1. Jesus, our Lord and God, Bore sin's tremendous load. Praise ye his name.
    Tell what his arm has done, What spoils from death he won. Sing his great name alone: Worthy the Lamb!

 

  1. Let all the hosts above Join in one song of love, Praising his name.
    To him ascribed be Honor and majesty Thru all eternity: Worthy the Lamb!

 

 

Go Forth With Faith, 263 - Ruth M. Gardner

Bear witness he is God's own Son; Proclaim his wondrous word.

Go forth with hope and courage strong To spread the word abroad

That people of all nations Are children of our God.

 

2.Go forth with love to tell the world The joy of families--

That we may be with those we love Thru all eternity.

Go forth to serve and do your best With no thought of reward;

Then you shall know the boundless joy Of serving Christ, the Lord.

 

3.Go forth with pow'r to tell the world The gospel is restored,

That all may gain eternal life Thru Jesus Christ, the Lord.

Go forth to preach his glorious truths Of peace, of joy, and love,

That all who heed his holy word May praise the Lord above.

 

 

Go, Ye Messengers of Glory, 262 - John Taylor

1.Go, ye messengers of glory; Run, ye legates of the skies.

Go and tell the pleasing story That a glorious angel flies,

Great and might, Great and mighty, With a message from the skies.

 

2.Go to every tribe and nation; Visit ev'ry land and clime.

Sound to all the proclamation; Tell to all the truth sublime:

That the gospel, That the gospel Does in ancient glory shine.

 

3.Go, to all the gospel carry; Let the joyful news abound.

Go till ev'ry nation hear you, Jew and Gentile greet the sound.

Let the gospel, Let the gospel Echo all the earth around.

Jehovah will support you; Gather all the sheaves of worth.

Then, with Jesus, Then, with Jesus Reign in glory on the earth.

 

 

Go, Ye Messengers of Heaven (Men), 327 - John Taylor

 

1.Go, ye messenger of heaven, Chosen by divine command.

Go and publish free salvation To a dark, benighted land.

 

2.Go to island, vale, and mountain; There fulfill the great command;

Gather out the sons of Jacob To possess the promised land.

 

3.When your thousands all are gathered, And their prayers for you ascend,

And the Lord has crowned with blessings All the labors of your hand,

 

4.Then the song of joy and transport Will from ev'ry land resound;

Then the nations long in darkness By the Savior will be crowned.

 

 

God Be with You Till We Meet Again, 152 - Jeremiah E. Rankin

  1. God be with you till we meet again; By his counsels guide, uphold you;
    With his sheep securely fold you. God be with you till we meet again.
    Till we meet, till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus' feet,
    Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again.

 

  1. God be with you till we meet again; When life's perils thick confound you,
    Put his arms unfailing round you. God be with you till we meet again.
    Till we meet, till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus' feet,
    Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again.

 

  1. God be with you till we meet again; Keep love's banner floating o'er you;
    Smite death's threat'ning wave before you. God be with you till we meet again.
    Till we meet, till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus' feet,
    Till we meet, till we meet, God be with you till we meet again.

On souls that thou wilt bless To choose in righteousness

The better part.

From sea to sea. Truth burns in ev'ry soul;

As one united whole, We hasten to the goal

We long to see.

Nor disagree. United heart and hand,

So may we ever stand, A firm and valiant band

Eternally.

 

 

God Is in His Holy Temple, 132 - Anonymous, Hymns of the Spirit, 1864.

 

  1. God is in his holy temple. Earthly thoughts be silent now,
    While with rev'rence we assemble And before his presence bow.
    He is with us, now and ever, When we call upon his name,
    Aiding ev'ry good endeavor, Guiding ev'ry upward aim.

 

  1. God is in his holy temple, in the pure and holy mind,
    In the rev'rent heart and simple, In the soul from sin refined.

    Let our souls, in pure devotion, Temples for thy worship be.

    All around and all above Bear this record: God is love.

 

  1. Sounds among the vales and hills, In the woods and by the rills,
    Of the breeze and of the bird, By the gentle murmur stirred--
    Sacred songs, beneath, above, Have one chorus: God is love.

    All the bliss that ever comes To our earthly human homes,
    All the voices from above Sweetly whisper: God is love.

He died in holy innocence, A broken law to recompense.

That in his off'ring I have part And hold a place within his heart.

Be made to bend, and I, as son, Learn conduct from the Holy One.

Partaking now is deed for word That I remember him, my Lord.

 

 

God Moves in a Mysterious Way, 285 - William Cowper

 

  1. God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform;
    He plants his footsteps in the sea And rides upon the storm.

 

  1. Ye fearful Saints, fresh courage take; The clouds ye so much dread
    Are big with mercy and shall break In blessings on your head.

 

  1. His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding ev'ry hour;
    The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flower.

 

  1. Blind unbelief is sure to err And scan his works in vain;
    God is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain.

 

 

God of Our Fathers, Known of Old, 80 - Rudyard Kipling

 

1.God of our fathers, known of old, Lord of our farflung battle line,

Beneath whose awful hand we hold Dominion over palm and pine:

Lord God of hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget, lest we forget.

 

2.The tumult and the shouting dies; The captains and the kings depart.

Still stands thine ancient sacrifice, An humble and a contrite heart.

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget, lest we forget.

 

3.Far-called, our navies melt away; On dune and headland sinks the fire.

Lo, all our pomp of yesterday Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!

Judge of the nations, spare us yet, Lest we forget, lest we forget.

 

Verses from The Cyber Hymnal

 

God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far flung battle line,
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pineó
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forgetólest we forget!

 

The tumult and the shouting dies;
The captains and the kings depart:
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forgetólest we forget!

 

Far called, our navies melt away;
On dune and headland sinks the fire:
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forgetólest we forget!

 

If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
Such boastings as the Gentiles use,
Or lesser breeds without the Lawó
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forgetólest we forget!

 

For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard,
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding, calls not Thee to guard,
For frantic boast and foolish wordó
Thy mercy on Thy people, Lord!
