I Am a Child of God, 301 - Naomi W. Randall

 

 1. I am a child of God, And he has sent me here.

Has given me an earthly home

With parents kind and dear.

Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,

Help me find the way.

Teach me all that I must do

To live with him someday.

 

2. I am a child of God, And so my needs are great;

Help me to understand his words

Before it grows too late.

Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,

Help me find the way. 

Teach me all that I must do

To live with him someday.

 

3. I am a child of God. Rich blessings are in store;

If I but learn to do his will

I'll live with him once more.

Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,

Help me find the way.

Teach me all that I must do

To live with him someday.

 

 

I Believe in Christ, 134 - Bruce R. McConkie

 

1.  I believe in Christ; he is my King! With all my heart to him I'll sing;

I'll raise my voice in praise and joy, In grand amens my tongue employ.

I believe in Christ; he is God's Son. On earth to dwell his soul did come.

He healed the sick; the dead he raised. Good works were his; his name be praised.

 

2.   I believe in Christ; oh, blessed name! As Mary's Son he came to reign

'Mid mortal men, his earthly kin, To save them from the woes of sin.

I believe in Christ, who marked the path, Who did gain all his Father hath,

Who said to men: "Come, follow me, That ye, my friends, with God may be."

 

3.   I believe in Christ--my Lord, my God! My feet he plants on gospel sod.

I'll worship him with all my might; He is the source of truth and light.

I believe in Christ; he ransoms me. From Satan's grasp he sets me free.

And I shall live with joy and love In his eternal courts above.

 

4.   I believe in Christ, he stands supreme! From him I'll gain my fondest dream;

And while I strive through grief and pain, His voice is heard: "Ye shall obtain."

I believe in Christ; so come what may, With him I'll stand in that great day

When on this earth he comes again To rule among the sons of men

 

 

I Have Work Enough to Do, 224 - Josephine Pollard

 

  1. I have work enough to do, Ere the sun goes down,
    For myself and kindred too, Ere the sun goes down:
    Ev'ry idle whisper stilling With a purpose firm and willing,
    All my daily tasks fulfilling, Ere the sun goes down.

 

  1. I must speak the loving word, Ere the sun goes down.
    I must let my voice be heard, Ere the sun goes down:
    Ev'ry cry of pity heeding, For the injured interceding,
    To the light the lost ones leading, Ere the sun goes down.

 

  1. As I journey on my way, Ere the sun goes down,
    God's commands I must obey, Ere the sun goes down.
    There are sins that need confessing; There are wrongs that need redressing
    If I would obtain the blessing, Ere the sun goes down.

 

 

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, 214 - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

  1. I heard the bells on Christmas day Their old familiar carols play,
    And wild and sweet the words repeat Of peace on earth, good will to men.

 

  1. I thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom
    Had rolled along th' unbroken song Of peace on earth, good will to men.

 

  1. And in despair I bowed my head: "There is no peace on earth," I said,
    "For hate is strong and mocks the song Of peace on earth, good will to men."

 

  1. Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:" God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
    The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, With peace on earth, good will to men."

 

  1. Till, ringing, singing, on its way, The world revolved from night to day,
    A voice, a chime, a chant sublime, Of peace on earth, good will to men!

 

 

I Know My Father Lives, 302 - Reid N. Nibley

 

1. I know my Father lives and loves me too.

The Spirit whispers this to me and tells me it is true,

And tells me it is true.

 

2. He sent me here to earth, by faith to live his plan.

The Spirit whispers this to me and tells me that I can,

And tells me that I can.

 

 

I Know That My Redeemer Lives, 136 - Samuel Medley, included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. I know that my redeemer lives. What comfort this sweet sentence gives.
    He lives, he lives, who once was dead. He lives, my everliving Head.
    He lives to bless me with his love. He lives to plead for me above.
    He lives my hungry soul to feed. He lives to bless in time of need.

 

  1. He lives to grant me rich supply. He lives to guide me with his eye.
    He lives to comfort me when faith. He lives to hear my soul's complaint.
    He lives to silence all my fears. He lives to wipe away my tears.
    He lives to calm my troubled heart. He lives all blessings to impart.

 

  1. He lives, my kind, wise heav'nly Friend. He lives and loves me to the end.
    He lives, and while he lives, I'll sing. He lives, my Prophet, Priest and King.
    He lives and grants me daily breath. He lives, and I shall conquer death.
    He lives my mansion to prepare. He lives to bring me safely there.

 

  1. He lives! All glory to his name! He lives, my Savior, still the same.
    Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives: "I know that my redeemer lives!"
    He lives! All glory to his name! He lives, my Savior, still the same.
    Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives: "I know that my redeemer lives!"

 

 

I Need Thee Every Hour, 98 - Annie S. Hawkes

 

  1. I need the every hour,

Most gracious Lord.

No tender voice like thine

Can peace afford.
I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev'ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

 

  1. I need thee every hour,

Stay thou nearby.

Temptations lose their pow'r

When thou art nigh.
I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev'ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

 

  1. I need thee every hour,

In joy or pain.

Come quickly and abide,

Or life is vain.
I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev'ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

 

  1. I need thee every hour,

Most holy One.

Oh, make me thine indeed,

Thou blessed Son!
I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev'ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

 

 

I Saw a Mighty Angel Fly, 15 - Anon., ca 1840

 

1. I saw a mighty angel fly, To earth he bent his way,

A message bearing from on high To cheer the sons of day.

Truth is the message which he bears, The gospel's joyful sound,

To calm our doubts, to chase our fears, And make our joys abound.

 

2. He cries, and with a mighty voice; Ye nations lend an ear,

And isles and continents rejoice: The great Redeemer's near!

He cries; let ev'ry ear attend, And thrones and empires all!

Fear God, and make the Lord your friend, The King, the Lord of all!

 

3. Fear God who made the water pure, The heavens, sea, and land.

His judgment will be swift and sure; The day is nigh at hand.

Then, all ye people, worship God; Give glory to his name!

To spread these tiding far abroad The holy angel came.

 

 

I Stand All Amazed, 193 - Charles H. Gabriel

 

  1. I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,

Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me he was crucified,

That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died.
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me enough to die for me!

Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!

 

  1. I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine

To rescue a soul so rebellious and pride as mine,
That he should extend his great love unto such as I,

Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me enough to die for me!

Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!

 

  1. I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!

Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,

Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me enough to die for me!

Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!

 

 

If You Could Hie to Kolob, 284 - William W. Phelps

 

1. If you could hie to Kolob In the twinkling of an eye,

And then continue onward With that same speed to fly,

Do you think that you could ever, Through all eternity,

Find out the generation Where Gods began to be?

 

2. Or see the grand beginning, Where space did not extend?

Or view the last creation, Where Gods and matter end?

Me thinks the Spirit whispers, "No man has found 'pure space,'

Nor seen the outside curtains, Where nothing has a place."

 

3. The works of God continue, And worlds and lives abound;

Improvement and progression Have one eternal round.

There is no end to matter; There is no end to space;

There is no end to spirit; There is no end to race.

 

4. There is no end to virtue; There is no end to might;

There is no end to wisdom; There is no end to light.

There is no end to union; There is no end to youth;

There is no end to priesthood; There is no end to truth.

 

5. There is no end to glory; There is no end to love;

There is no end to being; There is no death above.

There is no end to glory; There is no end to love;

There is no end to being; There is no death above.

 

 

I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go, 270 - Mary Brown

 

  1. It may not be on the mountain height Or over the stormy sea,
    It may not be at the battle's front My Lord will have need of me.
    But if, by a still, small voice he calls To paths that I do not know,
    I'll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in thine; I'll go where you want me to go.
    I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord, Over mountain or plain or sea;
    I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord; I'll be what you want me to be.

 

  1. Perhaps today there are loving words Which Jesus would have me speak
    There may be now in the paths of sin Some wand'rer whom I should seek.
    O Savior, if thou wilt be my guide, Tho dark and rugged the way,
    My voice shall echo the message sweet; I'll say what you want me to say.
    I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord, Over mountain or plain or sea;
    I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord; I'll be what you want me to be.

 

  1. There's surely somewhere a lowly place In earth's harvest fields so wide
    Where I may labor through life's short day For Jesus, the Crucified.
    So trusting my all to thy tender care, And knowing thou lovest me,
    I'll do thy will with a heart sincere: I'll be what you want me to be.
    I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord, Over mountain or plain or sea;
    I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord; I'll be what you want me to be.

 

 

I'm a Pilgrim, I'm a Stranger, 121 - Hans H. Petersen

 

  1. I'm a pilgrim, I'm a stranger Cast upon the rocky shore
    Of a land where deathly danger Surges with a sullen roar,
    Oft despairing, oft despairing, Lest I reach my home no more.

 

  1. Misty vapors rise before me. Scarcely can I see the way.
    Clouds of darkest hue hang o'er me, And I'm apt to go astray
    With the many, with the many That are now the vulture's prey.

 

  1. O my Father, I entreat thee, Let me see thy beck'ning hand;
    And when straying, may I meet thee, Ere I join the silent band.
    Guide me, Father, guide me, Father, Safely to the promised land.

 

 

Improve the Shining Moments, 226 - Robert B. Baird

 

  1. Improve the shining moments; Don't let them pass you by.
    Work while the sun is radiant; Work, for the night draws nigh.
    We cannot bid the sunbeams To lengthen out their stay,
    Nor can we ask the shadow To ever stay away.

 

  1. Time flies on wings of lightning; We cannot call it back.
    It comes, then passes forward Along its onward track.
    And if we are not mindful, The chance will fade away,
    For life is quick in passing. 'Tis as a single day.

 

  1. As wintertime doth follow The pleasant summer days,
    So may our joys all vanish And pass for from our gaze.
    Then should we not endeavor Each day some point to gain,
    That we may here be useful And ev'ry wrong disdain?

 

  1. Improve each shining moment. in this you are secure,
    For promptness bringeth safety And blessings rich and pure.
    Let prudence guide your actions; Be honest in your heart;
    And God will love and bless you And help to you impart.

 

 

In Fasting We Approach Thee, 139 - Paul L. Anderson and Lynn R. Carson

 

1.In fasting we approach thee here,

And pray thy Spirit from above

Will cleanse our hearts, cast out our fear,

And fill our hunger with thy love.

 

2.Thru this small sacrifice, may we

Recall that strength and life each day

Are sacred blessings sent from thee--

Fill us with gratitude, we pray.

 

3.And may our fast fill us with care

For all thy children now in need.

May we from our abundance share,

Thy sheep to bless, thy lambs to feed.

 

4.This fast, dear Father, sanctify--

Our faith and trust in thee increase.

As we commune and testify,

May we be filled with joy and peace.

 

 

In Humility, Our Savior, 172 - Mabel Jones Gabbott

 

1.  In humility, our Savior, Grant thy Spirit here, we pray,

As we bless the bread and water In thy name this holy day.

Let me not forget, O Savior, Thou didst bleed and die for me

When thy heart was stilled and broken On the cross at Calvary.

 

2.  Fill our hearts with sweet forgiving; Teach us tolerance and love.

Let our prayers find access to thee In thy holy courts above.

Then, when we have proven worthy Of thy sacrifice divine,

Lord, let us regain thy presence; Let thy glory round us shine.

 

 

In Hymns of Praise, 75 - Ada Blenkhorn

 

  1. In hymns of praise your voices raise To him who reigns on high,
    Whose counsels keep the mighty deep, Who ruleth earth and sky.
    Exalt his name in loud acclaim; His mighty pow'r adore!
    And humbly bow before him now, Our King forevermore.

 

  1. Beneath his hand, at his command, The shining planets move;
    To all below they daily show His wisdom and his love.
    Exalt his name in loud acclaim; His mighty pow'r adore!
    And humbly bow before him now, Our King forevermore.

 

  1. The little flow'r that lasts an hour, The sparrow in its fall,
    They, too, shall share his tender care; He made and loves them all.
    Exalt his name in loud acclaim; His mighty pow'r adore!
    And humbly bow before him now, Our King forevermore.

 

  1. Then sing again in lofty strain To him who dwells on high;
    To prayers you raise, and songs of praise, He sweetly will reply.
    Exalt his name in loud acclaim; His mighty pow'r adore!
    And humbly bow before him now, Our King forevermore.

 

 

In Memory of the Crucified, 190 Frank I. Kooyman

 

1. In mem'ry of the Crucified,
Our Father, we have met this hour.
May thy sweet Spirit here abide,
That all may feel its glowing pow'r.

2. Our Savior, in Gethsemane,
Shrank not to drink the bitter cup,
And then, for us, on Calvary,
Upon the cross was lifted up.

3. We rev'rence with the broken bread,
Together with the cup we take,
The body bruised, the life-blood shed,
A sinless ransom for our sake.

4. Our Father, may this sacrament
To ev'ry soul be sanctified,
Who eats and drinks with pure intent,
That in our Savior he'll abide.

 

 

In Our Lovely Deseret, 307 - Eliza R. Snow

 

  1. In our lovely Deseret, Where the Saints of God have met, There's a multitude of children all around.
    They are generous and brave; They have precious souls to save; They must listen and obey the gospel's sound.
    Hark! hark! hark! 'tis children's music-- Children's voices, oh, how sweet,
    When in innocence and love, Like the angels up above, They will happy hearts and cheerful faces meet.

 

  1. That the children may live long And be beautiful and strong, Tea and coffee and tobacco they despise,
    Drink no liquor, and they eat But a very little meat; They are seeking to be great and good and wise.
    Hark! hark! hark! 'tis children's music-- Children's voices, oh, how sweet,
    When in innocence and love, Like the angels up above, They will happy hearts and cheerful faces meet.

 

  1. They should be instructed young How to watch and guard the tongue, And their tempers train and evil passions bind;
    They should always be polite, And treat ev'rybody right, And in ev'ry place be affable and kind.
    Hark! hark! hark! 'tis children's music-- Children's voices, oh, how sweet,
    When in innocence and love, Like the angels up above, They will happy hearts and cheerful faces meet.

 

  1. They must not forget to pray, Night and morning ev'ry day, For the Lord to keep them safe from ev'ry ill,
    And assist them to do right, That with all their mind and might, They may love him and may learn to do his will.
    Hark! hark! hark! 'tis children's music-- Children's voices, oh, how sweet,
    When in innocence and love, Like the angels up above, They will happy hearts and cheerful faces meet.

 

 

In Remembrance of Thy Suffering, 183 - Evan Stephens

 

  1. In remembrance of thy suff'ring, Lord, these emblems we partake,
    When thyself thou gav'st an off'ring, Dying for the sinner's sake.
    We've forgiven as thou biddest All who've trespassed against us.
    Lord, forgive, as we've forgiven, All thou seest amiss in us.

 

  1. Purify our hearts, our Savior; Let us go not far astray,
    That we may be counted worthy Of thy Spirit day by day.
    When temptations are before us, Give us strength to overcome.
    Always guard us in our wand'rings Till we leave our earthly home.

 

  1. When thou comest in thy glory To this earth to rule and reign,
    And with faithful ones partakest Of the bread and wine again,
    May we be among the number Worthy to surround the board,
    And partake anew the emblems Of the suff'rings of our Lord.

 

 

Israel, Israel, God is Calling, 7 - Richard Smyth

 

  1. Israel, Israel, God is calling, Calling thee from lands of woe.
    Babylon the great is falling; God shall all her tow'rs o'erthrow.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion Ere his floods of anger flow.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion Ere his floods of anger flow.

 

  1. Israel, Israel, God is speaking, Hear your great Deliv'rer's voice!
    Now a glorious morn is breaking For the people of his choice.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion, And within her walls rejoice.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion, And within her walls rejoice.

 

  1. Israel, angels are descending From celestial worlds on high,
    And to man their pow'r extending, That the Saints may homeward fly.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion, For your coming Lord is nigh.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion, For your coming Lord is nigh.

 

  1. Israel! Israel! Canst thou linger Still in error's gloomy ways?
    Mark how judgment's pointing finger Justifies no vain delays.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion! Zion's walls shall ring with praise.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion! Zion's walls shall ring with praise.

 

 

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear, 207 - Edmund H. Sears

 

  1. It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old,
    From angels bending near the earth To touch their harps of gold:
    "Peace on the earth, good will to men From heav'n's all-gracious King."
    The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing.

 

  1. Still thru the cloven skies they come With peaceful wings unfurled,
    And still their heav'nly music floats O'er all the weary world.
    Above its sad and lowly plains They bend on hov'ring wing,
    And ever o'er its babel sounds The blessed angels sing.

 

  1. For lo! the days are hast'ning on, By prophets seen of old,
    When with the evercircling years Shall come the time foretold,
    When the new heav'n and earth shall own The Prince of Peace their King.
    And the whole world send back the song Which now the angels sing.
