Keep the Commandments, 303 - Barbara A. McConochie

 

Keep the commandments; keep the commandments!

In this there is safety; in this there is peace.

He will send blessings; He will send blessings.

Words of a prophet: Keep the commandments.

In this there is safety and peace.

 

 

Know This, That Every Soul Is Free, 240 - Anonymous. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

1. Know this, that ev'ry soul is free To choose his life and what he'll be;

For this eternal truth is giv'n: That God will force no man to heav'n.

 

2. He'll call, persuade, direct aright, And bless with wisdom, love, and light,

In nameless ways be good and kind, But never force the human mind.

 

3. Freedom and reason make us men; Take these away, what are we then?

Mere animals, and just as well The beasts may think of heav'n or hell.

 

4. May we no more our pow'rs abuse, But ways of truth and goodness choose;

Our God is pleased when we improve His grace and seek his perfect love.

 

 

Lead, Kindly Light, 97 - John Henry Newman

 

  1. Lead, kindly Light, amid th'encircling gloom; Lead thou me on!
    The night is dark, and I am far from home; Lead thou me on!
    Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see The distant scene--one step enough for me.

 

  1. I was not ever thus, nor pray'd that thou Shouldst lead me on.
    I loved to choose and see my path; but now, Lead thou me on!
    I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years.

 

  1. So long thy pow'r hath blest me, sure it still Will lead me on
    O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till The night is gone.
    And with the morn those angel faces smile, Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile!

 

 

Lead Me into Life Eternal, 45 - John A. Widstoe

 

1.  Lead me into life eternal By the gospel's holy call.

Let thy promise rest upon me; Grant me ready strength for all.

 

2.  Father, all my heart I give thee; All my service shall be thine.

Guide me as I search in weakness; Let thy loving light be mine.

 

3.  Hear me as I pray in meekness; Let my strength be as thy day.

Give me faith, the greater knowledge; Father, bless me as I pray.

 

 

Lean on My Ample Arm, 120 - Theodore E. Curtis

 

  1. Lean on my ample arm, O thou depressed! And I will bid the storm Cease in thy breast.
    Whate'er thy lot may be On life's complaining sea, If thou wilt come to me, Thou shalt have rest.

 

  1. Lift up thy tearful eyes, Sad heart, to me; I am the sacrifice Offered for thee.
    In me thy pain shall cease, In me is thy release, In me thou shalt have peace

Eternally

 

 

Let Earth's Inhabitants Rejoice, 53 - William Clegg

 

1. Let earth's inhabitants rejoice And gladly hail the glorious hour;

Again is heard a prophet's voice, And all may feel the gospel's pow'r.

 

2. The blissful time will soon arrive, The day by holy men foretold,

When man no more with man will strive, And all in each a friend behold.

 

3. Oppression will no more be found, Nor tyrant hold relentless sway,

But love to God and man abound Thruout the long millennial day.

 

 

Let the Holy Spirit Guide, 143 - Penelope Moody Allen

 

1.  Let the Holy Spirit guide; Let him teach us what is true.

He will testify of Christ, Light our minds with heaven's view.

 

2.  Let the Holy Spirit guard; Let his whisper govern choice.

He will lead us safely home If we listen to his voice.

 

3.  Let the Spirit heal our hearts Thru his quiet, gentle pow'r.

May we purify our lives To receive him hour by hour.

 

 

Let Us All Press On, 243 - Evan Stephens

 

  1. Let us all press on in the work of the Lord, That when life is o'er we may gain a reward;
    In the fight for right let us wield a sword, The mighty sword of truth.
    Fear not, though the enemy deride; Courage, for the Lord is on our side.
    We will heed not what the wicked may say, But the Lord alone we will obey.

 

  1. We will not retreat, though our numbers may be few When compared with the opposite host in view;
    But an unseen pow'r will aid me and you In the glorious cause of truth.
    Fear not, though the enemy deride; Courage, for the Lord is on our side.
    We will heed not what the wicked may say, But the Lord alone we will obey.

 

  1. If we do what's right we have no need to fear, For the Lord, our helper, will ever be near;
    In the days of trial his Saints he will cheer, And prosper the cause of truth.
    Fear not, though the enemy deride; Courage, for the Lord is on our side.
    We will heed not what the wicked may say, But the Lord alone we will obey.

 

(Harmony lyrics in Chorus)
Fear not, courage, though the enemy deride;
We must be victorious, for the Lord is on our side.
We'll not fear the wicked nor give heed to what they say,
But the Lord, our Heav'nly Father, him alone we will obey.

 

 

Let Us Oft Speak Kind Words, 232 - Joseph L. Townsend

 

  1. Let us oft speak kind words to each other At home or where'er we may be;
    Like the warblings of birds on the heather, The tones will be welcome and free.
    They'll gladden the heart that's repining, Give courage and hope from above,
    And where the dark clouds hide the shining, Let in the bright sunlight of love.
    Oh the kind words we give shall in memory live And sunshine forever impart.
    Let us oft speak kind words to each other, Kind words are sweet tones of the heart.

 

  1. Like the sunbeams of morn on the mountains, The soul they awake to good cheer;
    Like the murmur of cool, pleasant fountains, They fall in sweet cadences near.
    Let's oft, then, in kindly toned voices, Our mutual friendship renew,
    Till heart meets with heart and rejoices In friendship that ever is true.
    Oh the kind words we give shall in memory live And sunshine forever impart.
    Let us oft speak kind words to each other, Kind words are sweet tones of the heart.

 

 

Let Zion in Her Beauty Rise, 41 - Edward Partridge. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. Let Zion in her beauty rise; Her light begins to shine.
    Ere long her King will rend the skies, Majestic and divine,
    The gospel spreading thru the land, A people to prepare
    To meet the Lord and Enoch's band, Triumphant in the air.

 

  1. Ye heralds, sound the golden trump To earth's remotest bound.
    Go spread the news from pole to pole in all the nations round:
    That Jesus in the clouds above, With hosts of angels too,
    Will soon appear, his Saints to save, His enemies subdue.

 

  1. That glorious rest will then commence Which prophets did foretell,
    When Saints will reign with Christ on earth, And in his presence dwell
    A thousand years, oh, glorious day! Dear Lord, prepare my heart
    To stand with thee on Zion's mount And nevermore to part.

 

 

Like Ten Thousand Legions Marching, 253 - Jean L. Kaberry

 

1. Like ten thousand legions marching Moves a mighty band of youth,

Boldly taking to all people Zion's glorious song of truth.

 

2. Out of ev'ry nation surging--Sons of Joseph, Israel's band--

Now they spread salvation's message In the tongues of ev'ry land.

 

3. Far across the mighty waters, Reaching ev'ry waiting shore,

Seed of Abraham and Jacob Like a mighty lion roar.

 

4. Come, ye nations, out of darkness; 'Tis the time of Christ's return.

Heed the Restoration's message; Let its light within you burn.

 

 

Lo, the Mighty God Appearing! 55 - William Goode

 

  1. Lo, the mighty God appearing! From on high Jehovah speaks!
    Eastern lands the summons hearing, O'er the west his thunder breaks.
    Earth behold him! Earth behold him! Universal nature shakes.
    Earth behold him! Earth behold him! Universal nature shakes.

 

  1. Zion, all its light unfolding, God in glory shall display.
    Lo! he comes! nor silence holding; Fire and clouds prepare his way.
    Tempests round him! Tempests round him! Hasten on the dreadful day.
    Tempests round him! Tempests round him! Hasten on the dreadful day.

 

  1. To the heav'ns his voice ascending, To the earth beneath he cries.
    Souls immortal, now descending, Let their sleeping dust arise!
    Rise to judgment! Rise to judgment! Let thy throne adorn the skies.
    Rise to judgment! Rise to judgment! Let thy throne adorn the skies.

 

  1. Now the heav'ns on high adore him And his righteousness declare.
    Sinners perish from before him, But his Saints his mercies share.
    Just his judgments! Just his judgments! God, himself the judge, is there.
    Just his judgments! Just his judgments! God, himself the judge, is there.

 

 

Lord, Accept into Thy Kingdom, 236 - Mabel Jones Gabbott

 

1. Lord, accept into thy kingdom Each repentant, humbled one,

Born of water and the Spirit In thy name, Beloved Son.

Let the Holy Ghost, descending, Comfort, guide the path of youth,

Channel of all light and glory, Key to vision, knowledge, truth.

 

2. Know ye not that he was holy? Yet he witnessed unto men

That the way is straight and narrow Leading unto God again.

Hark, glad tidings of salvation. Hear his word, "Come follow me

Unto glory in my kingdom, Unto life eternally."

 

3. Like the sound of rushing waters In this day his word is said:

Holy ordinance of mercy For the living and the dead!

Let your hearts rejoice in gladness! Let the earth break forth and sing!

Let the dead speak praising anthems To our God, eternal King!

 

 

Lord, Accept Our True Devotion, 107 - Richard Alldridge

 

  1. Lord, accept our true devotion. Let thy Spirit whisper peace.
    Swell our hearts with fond emotion, And our joy in thee increase.
    Never leave us, never leave us. Help us Lord, to win the race.
    Never leave us, never leave us. Help us Lord, to win the race.

 

  1. Help us all to do thy bidding, And our daily wants supply.
    Give thy Holy Spirit's guiding Till we reach the goal on high.
    Ever guard us, ever guard us, Till we gain the victory.
    Ever guard us, ever guard us, Till we gain the victory.

 

  1. May we, with the future dawning, Day by day from sin be free,
    That on resurrection morning We may rise at peace with thee,
    Ever praising, ever praising, Throughout all eternity;
    Ever praising, ever praising, Throughout all eternity.

 

 

Lord, Dismiss Us with Thy Blessing, 163 - John Fawcett

 

  1. Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing; Fill our hearts with joy and peace.
    Let us each, thy love possessing, Triumph in redeeming grace.
    Oh, refresh us, oh, refresh us, Trav'ling thru this wilderness.
    Oh, refresh us, oh, refresh us, Trav'ling thru this wilderness.

 

  1. Thanks we give and adoration For the gospel's joyful sound.
    May the fruits of thy salvation In our hearts and lives abound.
    Ever faithful, ever faithful to the truth may we be found.
    Ever faithful, ever faithful to the truth may be we found.

 

 

Lord, I Would Follow Thee, 220 - Susan Evans McCloud

Pause to help and lift another, Finding strength beyond my own.

Savior, may I learn to love thee--Lord, I would follow thee.

 

2.  Who am I to judge another When I walk imperfectly?

In the quiet heart is hidden Sorrow that the eye can't see.

Who am I to judge another? Lord, I would follow thee.

 

3.  I would be my brother's keeper; I would learn the healer's art.

To the wounded and the weary I would show a gentle heart.

I would be my brother's keeper--Lord, I would follow thee.

Find in thee my strength, my beacon, For thy servant I would be.

Lord from hence we would not go, Till a blessing thou bestow.

Comfort those who weep and mourn; Let the time of love return.

Heal the sick, the captive free. Let us all rejoice in thee.

 

 

Love at Home, 294 - John Hugh McNaughton

 

  1. There is beauty all around When there's love at home;
    There is joy in ev'ry sound When there's love at home.
    Peace and plenty here abide, Smiling sweet on ev'ry side.
    Time doth softly, sweetly glide When there's love at home.
    Love at home, Love at home; Time doth softly, sweetly glide When there's love at home.

 

  1. In the cottage there is joy When there's love at home;
    Hate and envy ne'er annoy When there's love at home.
    Roses bloom beneath our feet; All the earth's a garden sweet,
    Making life a bliss complete When there's love at home.
    Love at home, Love at home, Making life a bliss complete When there's love at home.

 

  1. Kindly heaven smiles above When there's love at home;
    All the world is filled with love When there's love at home.
    Sweeter sings the brooklet by; Brighter beams the azure sky.
    Oh, there's one who smiles on high When there's love at home.
    Love at home, love at home; Oh, there's One who smiles on high When there's love at home.

By this shall men know Ye are my disciples,

If ye have love One to another.
