Nay, Speak No Ill, 233 - Anonymous

 

  1. Nay, speak no ill; a kindly word Can never leave a sting behind;
    And, oh, to breathe each tale we've heard Is far beneath a noble mind.
    Full oft a better seed is sown By choosing thus the kinder plan,
    For, if but little good is known, Still let us speak the best we can.

 

  1. Give me the heart that fain would hide, Would fain another's faults efface.
    How can it please the human pride To prove humanity but base?
    No, let us reach a higher mood, A nobler estimate of man;
    Be earnest in the search for good, And speak of all the best we can.

 

  1. Then speak no ill, but lenient be To others' failings as your own.
    If you're the first a fault to see, Be not the first to make it known,
    For life is but a passing day; No lip may tell how brief its span.
    Then, oh, the little time we stay, Let's speak of all the best we can.

 

 

Nearer, Dear Savior, to Thee, 99 - Joseph L. Townsend

 

  1. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee, Nearer, nearer to thee--
    Ever I'm striving to be Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
    Trusting, in thee I confide; Hoping, in thee I abide.
    Take, oh, take, and cherish me, Nearer, dear Savior, to thee.

 

  1. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee, Nearer, nearer to thee--
    Proved by my trials, I'll be Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
    Humbly I come to thee now; Earnest, I prayerfully bow.
    Take, oh, take, and cherish me, Nearer, dear Savior, to thee.

 

  1. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee, Nearer, nearer to thee--
    Ever my anthem will be Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
    Loving thee, ever I pray, Aid me thy will to obey.
    Take, oh, take, and cherish me, Nearer, dear Savior, to thee.

 

  1. Nearer, dear Savior, to thee, Nearer, nearer to thee--
    Let me by holiness be Nearer, yet nearer to thee!
    When al my trials are done, When my reward I have won,
    Take, oh, take, and cherish me, Nearer, dear Savior, to thee.

 

 

Nearer, My God, to Thee, 100 - Sarah F. Adams

 

  1. Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee! E'en though it be a cross That raiseth me.
    Still all my song shall be Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to Thee!

 

  1. Though like the wanderer, The sun gone down, Darkness be over me, My rest a stone,
    Yet in my dreams I'd be Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee!

 

  1. There let the way appear, Steps unto heav'n; All that thou sendest me, In mercy giv'n;
    Angels to beckon me Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee!

 

  1. Then with my waking thoughts Bright with thy praise, Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise;
    So by my woes to be Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee!

 

  1. Or if, on joyful wing Cleaving the sky, Sun, moon, and stars forgot, Upward I fly,
    Still all my song shall be Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee!

 

 

Now Let Us Rejoice, 3 - William W. Phelps. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. Now let us rejoice in the day of salvation, No longer as strangers on earth need we roam.
    Good tidings are sounding to us and each nation, And shortly the hour of redemption will come,
    When all that was promised the Saints will be given, And none will molest them from morn until ev'n,
    And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden, And Jesus will say to all Israel, "Come home."

 

  1. We'll love one another and never dissemble, But cease to do evil and ever be one.
    And when the ungodly are fearing and tremble, We'll watch for the day when the Savior will come,
    When all that was promised the Saints will be given, And none will molest them from morn until ev'n.
    And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden, And Jesus will say to all Israel, "Come home."

 

  1. In faith we'll rely on the arm of Jehovah To guide thru these last days of trouble and gloom,
    And after the scourges and harvest are over, We'll rise with the just when the Savior doth come.
    Then all that was promised the Saints will be given, And they will be crown'd with the angels of heav'n,
    And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden, And Christ and his people will ever be one.

 

 

Now Thank We All Our God, 95 - Martin Rinkhart, trans. by Catherine Winkworth

.

  1. Now thank we all our God With hearts and hands and voices,
    Who wondrous things hath done, In whom his earth rejoices;
    Who, from our mother's arms, hath blessed us on our way
    With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today.

 

  1. Oh, may our bounteous God Through all our life be near us,
    With ever joyful hearts And blessed peace to cheer us,
    And keep us in his love, And guide us day and night,
    And free us from all ills, Protect us by his might.

 

 

Now the Day Is Over, 159 - Sabine Baring-Gould

 

  1. Now the day is over; Night is drawing nigh;
    Shadows of the evening Steal across the sky

 

  1. Jesus, give the weary Calm and sweet repose;
    With thy tend'rest blessing May our eyelids close.

 

 

Now We'll Sing with One Accord, 25 - William W. Phelps. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. Now we'll sing with one accord, For a prophet of the Lord,
    Bringing forth his precious word, Cheers the Saints as anciently.
    When the world in darkness lay, Lo! he sought the better way,
    And he heard the Savior say, "Go and prune my vineyard, son!"

 

  1. And an angel surely then, For a blessing unto men,
    Brought the priesthood back again In its ancient purity.
    Even Joseph he inspired; Yea, his heart he truly fired
    With the light that he desired For the work of righteousness.

 

  1. And the Book of Mormon true, With its cov'nant ever new,
    For the Gentile and the Jew, He translated sacredly.
    God's commandments to mankind, For believing Saints designed,
    And to bless the seeking mind, Came to him from Jesus Christ.

 

  1. Precious are the years to come, While the righteous gather home
    For the great millennium, When they'll rest in blessedness.
    Prudent in this world of woes, They will triumph o'er their foes,
    While the realm of Zion grows Purer for eternity.
