Teach Me to Walk in the Light, 304 - Clara W. McMaster

 

  1. Teach me to walk in the light of his love; Teach me to pray to my Father above;
    Teach me to know of the things that are right; Teach me, teach me to walk in the light.

 

  1. Come, little child, and together we'll learn Of his commandments, that we may return
    Home to his presence, to live in his sight--Always, always to walk in the light.

    Grateful, we praise thee with songs of delight! Gladly, gladly we'll walk in the light.

 

 

Testimony, 137 - Loren C. Dunn

 

  1. The witness of the Holy Ghost, As borne by those who know,
    Has lifted me again to thee, O Father of my soul.

    I know a prophet speaks to us For our eternal gain.

 

  1. My eyes are wet; my heart is full. The Spirit speaks today.
    O Lord, wilt thou my life renew And in my bosom stay.

 

  1. As testimony fills my heart, It dulls the pain of days.
    For one brief moment, heaven's view Appears before my gaze.

 

 

Thanks for the Sabbath School, 278 - William Willes

 

  1. Thanks for the Sabbath School, Hail to the day When evil and error are fleeing away.
    Thanks for our teachers who labor with care That we in the light of the gospel may share.
    Join in the jubilee; mingle in song. Join in the joy of the Sabbath School throng.
    Great be the glory of those who do right, Who overcome evil, in good take delight.

 

  1. Now in the morning of life let us try Each virtue to cherish, all vice to decry;
    Strive with the noble in deeds that exalt, And battle with energy each childish fault.
    Join in the jubilee; mingle in song. Join in the joy of the Sabbath School throng.
    Great be the glory of those who do right, Who overcome evil, in good take delight.

 

  1. May we endeavor through life's devious way To watch and be earnest, true wisdom display;
    Try to o'ercome each temptation and snare, Thereby full salvation eternally share.
    Join in the jubilee; mingle in song. Join in the joy of the Sabbath School throng.
    Great be the glory of those who do right, Who overcome evil, in good take delight.

 

 

That Easter Morn, 198 - Marion D. Hanks

 

  1. That Easter morn, a grave that burst Proclaimed to man that "Last and First"
    Had ris'n again And conquered pain.

    Took living breath And conquered death.

    Shed grateful tear And conquer fear.

 

 

The Day Dawn is Breaking, 52 - Joseph L. Townsend

 

  1. The day dawn is breaking, the world is awaking, The clouds of night's darkness are fleeing away.
    The worldwide commotion, from ocean to ocean, Now heralds the time of the beautiful day.
    Beautiful day of peace and rest, Bright be thy dawn from east to west.
    Hail to thine earliest welcome ray, Beautiful, bright, millennial day.

 

  1. In many a temple the Saints will assemble And labor as saviors of dear ones away.
    Then happy reunion and sweetest communion We'll have with our friends in the beautiful day.
    Beautiful day of peace and rest, Bright be thy dawn from east to west.
    Hail to thine earliest welcome ray, Beautiful, bright, millennial day.

 

  1. Still let us be doing, our lessons reviewing, Which God has revealed for our walk in his way;
    And then, wondrous story, the Lord in his glory Will come in his pow'r in the beautiful day.
    Beautiful day of peace and rest, Bright be thy dawn from east to west.
    Hail to thine earliest welcome ray, Beautiful, bright, millennial day.

 

  1. Then pure and supernal, our friendship eternal, With Jesus we'll live, and his counsels obey
    Until ev'ry nation will join in salvation And worship the Lord of the beautiful day.
    Beautiful day of peace and rest, Bright be thy dawn from east to west.
    Hail to thine earliest welcome ray, Beautiful, bright, millennial day.

 

 

The First Noel, 213 - Traditional English carol

 

  1. The first Noel the angel did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay,
    In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel! Born is the King of Israel!

 

  1. They looked up and saw a star Shining in the East beyond them far,
    And to the earth it gave great light, And so it continued both day and night.
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel! Born is the King of Israel!

 

 

The Glorious Gospel Light Has Shone, 283 - Joel H. Johnson

 

  1. The glorious gospel light has shone In this the latter day
    With such intelligence that none From truth need turn away.
    The precious things which had been sealed And from the world kept hid,
    The Lord has to his Saints revealed As anciently he did,

 

  1. And thru the priesthood now restored Again prepared the way
    Thru which the dead may hear his word And all his laws obey.
    As Christ to spirits went to preach Who were to prison led,
    So many Saints have gone to teach The gospel to the dead.

 

  1. And we for them can be baptized, Yes, for our friends most dear,
    That they can with the just be raised When Gabriel's trump they hear;
    That they may come with Christ again When he to earth descends,
    A thousand years with him to reign, And with their earthly friends.

 

  1. Now, O ye Saints, rejoice today That you can saviors be
    Of all your dead who will obey The gospel and be free.
    Then let us rise without restraint And act for those we love,
    For they are giving their consent And wait for us to move.

 

 

The Happy Day at Last Has Come, 32 - Philo Dibble. Included in the first LDS Hymnbook, 1835

 

  1. The happy day at last has come. The truth restored is now made known.
    The promised angel's come again To introduce Messiah's reign.

 

  1. The gospel trump again is heard. The truth from darkness has appeared.
    The lands which long benighted lay Have now beheld a glorious day:

 

  1. The day by prophets long foretold, The day which Abram did behold,
    The day that Saints desired so long, When God his great work would perform,

 

  1. The day when Saints again shall hear The voice of Jesus in their ear,
    And angels, who above do reign, Come down to speak again with me.

 

 

The Iron Rod, 274 - Joseph L. Townsend

 

  1. To Nephi, seer of olden time, A vision came from God,
    Wherein the holy word sublime Was shown an iron rod.
    Hold to the rod, the iron rod; 'Tis strong, and bright, and true.
    The iron rod is the word of God; 'Twill safely guide us through.

 

  1. While on our journey here below, Beneath temptation's pow'r,
    Through mists of darkness we must go, In peril ev'ry hour.
    Hold to the rod, the iron rod; 'Tis strong, and bright, and true.
    The iron rod is the word of God; 'Twill safely guide us through.

 

  1. And when temptation's pow'r is nigh, Our pathway clouded o'er,
    Upon the rod we can rely, And heaven's aid implore.
    Hold to the rod, the iron rod; 'Tis strong, and bright, and true.
    The iron rod is the word of God; 'Twill safely guide us through.

 

 

The Light Divine, 305 - Matilda Watts Cahoon

 

  1. The light of God rests on the face Of brook and flow'r and tree
    And kindles in our happy hearts The hope of things to be.
    Father, let thy light divine Shine on us, we pray. Touch our eyes that we may see; Teach us to obey.
    Ours the sacred mission is To bear thy message far. The light of faith is in our hearts, Truth our guiding star.

 

  1. The light of faith abides within The heart of ev'ry child;
    Like buds that wait for blossoming, It grows with radiance mild.
    Father, let thy light divine Shine on us, we pray. Touch our eyes that we may see; Teach us to obey.
    Ours the sacred mission is To bear thy message far. The light of faith is in our hearts, Truth our guiding star.

 

  1. Today thine unseen purposes By faith's rare light we feel.
    Dear Father, make us pure in heart; To us thy will reveal.
    Father, let thy light divine Shine on us, we pray. Touch our eyes that we may see; Teach us to obey.
    Ours the sacred mission is To bear thy message far. The light of faith is in our hearts, Truth our guiding star.

 

 

The Lord Be with Us, 161 - John Ellerton

    In silent thought or friendly talk, Our hearts be near to God.
    In silent thought or friendly talk, Our hearts be near to God.

    And be in ev'ry heart the light, In ev'ry home the guest.

The Lord is My Light, 89 - James Nicholson

    The Lord is my light; He is my joy and my song.
    By day and by night he leads, he leads me along.

 

  1. The Lord is my light; tho clouds may arise, Faith, stronger than sight, looks up thru the skies
    Where Jesus forever in glory doth reign. Then how can I ever in darkness remain?

    By day and by night he leads, he leads me along.

 

  1. The Lord is my light; the Lord is my strength. I know in his might I'll conquer at length.

    By day and by night he leads, he leads me along.

    By day and by night he leads, he leads me along.

 

 

The Lord is My Shepherd, 108 - James Montgomery, based on Psalm 23

 

  1. The Lord is my Shepherd; no want shall I know. I feed in green pastures; safe-folded I rest.
    He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow, Restores me when wand'ring, redeems when oppressed,
    Restores me when wand'ring, redeems when oppressed.

 

  1. Thru the valley and shadow of death though I stray, Since thou art my Guardian, no evil I fear
    Thy rod shall defend me, thy staff be my stay. No harm can befall with my Comforter near.
    No harm can befall with my Comforter near.

 

  1. In the midst of affliction my table is spread. With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er.
    With perfume and oil thou anointest my head. Oh, what shall I ask of thy providence more?
    Oh, what shall I ask of thy providence more?

 

 

The Lord My Pasture Will Prepare, 109 - Joseph Addison

 

  1. The Lord my pasture will prepare, And feed me with a shepherd's care.
    His presence will my wants supply, And guard me with a watchful eye.
    My noonday walks he will attend, And all my silent midnight hours defend.

 

  1. When in the sultry glebe I faint, Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
    To fertile vales and dewy meads My weary, wand'ring steps he leads,
    Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow, Amid the cooling verdant landscape flow.

 

 

The Morning Breaks, 1 - Parley P. Pratt

    The dawning of a brighter day, The dawning of a brighter day Majestic rises on the world.

    The glory bursting from afar, The glory bursting from afar Wide o'er the nations soon will shine.

    His mighty arm is making bare, His mighty arm is making bare His cov'nant people to receive.

    Thus Zion's light is bursting forth, Thus Zion's light is bursting forth To bring her ransomed children home.

 

 

The Priesthood of Our Lord (Men), 320 - John Craven

    If, as brethren, we are worthy Of the Spirit's whispered word.

    Deacons, teachers, priests, and elders, Seeking virtue side by side.

 

 

The Spirit of God, 2 - William W. Phelps. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. The Spirit of God like a fire is burning, The latter-day glory begins to come forth;
    The visions and blessings of old are returning, And angels are coming to visit the earth.
    We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven, Hosanna, hosanna to God and the Lamb!
    Let glory to them in the highest be given, Henceforth and forever, Amen and amen!

 

  1. The Lord is extending the Saints' understanding, Restoring their judges and all as at first.
    The knowledge and power of God are expanding; The veil o'er the earth is beginning to burst.

    Let glory to them in the highest be given, Henceforth and forever, Amen and amen!

 

  1. We'll call in our solemn assemblies in spirit, To spread forth the kingdom of heaven abroad,
    That we through our faith may begin to inherit The visions and blessings and glories of God.

    Let glory to them in the highest be given, Henceforth and forever, Amen and amen!

 

  1. How blessed the day when the lamb and the lion Shall lie down together without any ire,
    And Ephraim be crowned with his blessings in Zion, As Jesus descends with his chariot of fire!

    Let glory to them in the highest be given, Henceforth and forever, Amen and amen!

 

 

 The Star-Spangled Banner, 340 - Francis Scott Key

 

  1. Oh say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof thru the night that our flag was still there.
    Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

 

  1. On the shore, dimly seen thru the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
    Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, In full glory reflected now shines on the stream;
    'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

 

  1. Oh, thus be it ever, when free men shall stand Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
    Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation!
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: "In God is our trust!"
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

 

 

The Time Is Far Spent, 266 - Eliza R. Snow

 

  1. The time is far spent; there is little remaining To publish glad tidings by sea and by land.
    Then hasten, ye heralds; go forward proclaiming: Repent for the kingdom of heaven's at hand,
    Repent, for the kingdom of heaven's at hand.

 

  1. Shrink not from your duty, however unpleasant, But follow the Savior, your pattern and friend.
    Our little afflictions, tho painful at present, Ere long, with the righteous, in glory will end.
    Ere long, with the righteous, in glory will end.

 

  1. What, tho, if the favor of Ahman possessing, This world's bitter hate you are called to endure?
    The angels are waiting to crown you with blessings! Go forward, be faithful, the promise is sure.
    Go forward, be faithful, the promise is sure.

 

 

 

The Voice of God Again Is Heard, 18 - Evan Stephens

 

  1. The voice of God again is heard. The silence has been broken.
    The curse of darkness is withdrawn. The Lord from heav'n has spoken.
    Rejoice, ye living and ye dead! Rejoice, for your salvation
    Begins anew this happy morn Of final dispensation.

 

  1. O messengers of truth, go forth; Proclaim the gospel story.
    Go forth the nations to prepare To greet the King of glory.
    We shout hosanna, shout again, Till all creation blending
    Shall join in one great, grand amen Of anthems never-ending.

 

 

The Wintry Day, Descending to Its Close, 37 - Orson F. Whitney

 

  1. The wintry day, descending to its close, Invites all wearied nature to repose,
    And shades of night are falling dense and fast, Like sable curtains closing o'er the past.
    Pale through the gloom the newly fallen snow Wraps in the shroud the silent earth below
    As tho 'twere mercy's hand had spread the pall, A symbol of forgiveness unto all.

 

  1. I cannot got o rest, but linger still In meditation at my windowsill,
    While, like the twinkling stars in heaven's dome, Come one by one sweet memories of home.
    And wouldst thou ask me where my fancy roves To reproduce the happy scenes it loves,
    Where hope and memory together dwell And paint the pictured beauties that I tell?

 

  1. Away beyond the prairies of the West, Where exiled Saints in solitude were blest,
    Where industry the seal of wealth has set Amid the peaceful vales of Deseret,
    Unheeding still the fiercest blasts that blow, With tops encrusted by eternal snow,
    The tow'ring peaks that shield the tender sod Stand, types of freedom reared by nature's God.

 

  1. The wilderness, that naught before would yield, Is now become a fertile, fruitful field.
    Where roamed at will the fearless Indian band, The templed cities of the Saints now stand.
    And sweet religion in its purity Invites all men to its security.
    There is my home, the spot I love so well, Whose worth and beauty pen nor tongue can tell.

 

 

There Is a Green Hill Far Away, 194 - Cecil Frances Alexander

 

  1. There is a green hill far away, Without a city wall,
    Where the dear Lord was crucified, Who died to save us all.

 

  1. We may not know, we cannot tell, What pains he had to bear,
    But we believe it was for us He hung and suffered there.

 

  1. There was no other good enough To pay the price of sin.
    He only could unlock the gate Of heav'n and let us in.

 

  1. Oh, dearly, dearly has he loved! And we must love him too,
    And trust in his redeeming blood, And try his works to do.

 

 

There Is Sunshine in My Soul Today, 227 - Eliza E. Hewitt

 

  1. There is sunshine in my soul today, More glorious and bright
    Than glows in any earthly sky, For Jesus is my light.
    Oh there's sunshine, blessed sunshine When the peaceful happy moments roll.
    When Jesus shows his smiling face, There is sunshine in the soul.

 

  1. There is music in my soul today, A carol to my King,
    And Jesus listening can hear The songs I cannot sing.
    Oh there's sunshine, blessed sunshine When the peaceful happy moments roll.
    When Jesus shows his smiling face, There is sunshine in the soul.

 

  1. There is springtime in my soul today, For when the Lord is near,
    The dove of peace sings in my heart, The flow'rs of grace appear.
    Oh there's sunshine, blessed sunshine When the peaceful happy moments roll.
    When Jesus shows his smiling face, There is sunshine in the soul.

 

  1. There is gladness in my soul today, And hope and praise and love,
    For blessings which he gives me now, For joys "laid up" above.
    Oh there's sunshine, blessed sunshine When the peaceful happy moments roll.
    When Jesus shows his smiling face, There is sunshine in the soul.

 

 

They, the Builders of the Nation, 36 - Ida R. Alldredge

 

  1. They, the builders of the nation, Blazing trails along the way;
    Steppingstones for generations Were their deeds of ev'ry day.
    Building new and firm foundations, Pushing on the wild frontier,
    Forging onward, ever onward, Blessed, honored Pioneer!

 

  1. Service ever was their watchcry; Love became their guiding star;
    Courage, their unfailing beacon, Radiating near and far.
    Ev'ry day some burden lifted, Ev'ry day some heart to cheer,
    Ev'ry day some hope the brighter, Blessed, honored Pioneer!

 

  1. As an ensign to the nation, They unfurled the flag of truth;
    Pillar, guide, and inspiration To the hosts of waiting youth.
    Honor, praise, and veneration To the founders we revere!
    List our song of adoration, Blessed, honored Pioneer!

 

 

 

This House We Dedicate to Thee, 245 - Henry W. Naisbitt

 

  1. This house we dedicate to thee, Our God, our fathers' God.
    Wilt thou accept and deign to bless The path our feet have trod?

 

  1. Wilt thou thy servants here inspire When in thy name they speak?
    And wilt thou bless each contrite soul Who here thy face doth seek?

 

  1. Here may our sons and daughters come And find that peace which swells
    From grateful hearts, when touched by thee, Wherein thy Spirit dwells!

 

 

Though Deepening Trials, 122 - Eliza R. Snow

 

  1. Though deep'ning trials throng your way, Press on, press on, ye Saints of God!
    Ere long the resurrection day Will spread its life and truth abroad, Will spread its life and truth abroad.

 

  1. Though outward ills await us here, The time, at longest, is not long
    Ere Jesus Christ will reappear, Surrounded by a glorious throng, Surrounded by a glorious throng.

 

  1. Lift up your hearts in praise to God; Let your rejoicings never cease.
    Though tribulations rage abroad, Christ says, "In me ye shall have peace." Christ says, "In me ye shall have peace."

 

  1. What though our rights have been assailed? What though by foes we've been despoiled?
    Jehovah's promise has not failed; Jehovah's purpose is not foiled. Jehovah's purpose is not foiled.

 

  1. This work is moving on apace, And great events are rolling forth;
    The kingdom of the latter days, The "little stone", must fill the earth, The "little stone" must fill the earth.

 

  1. Though Satan rage, 'tis all in vain; The words the ancient prophet spoke
    Sure as the throne of God remain; Nor men nor devils can revoke. Nor men nor devils can revoke.

 

  1. All glory to his holy name Who sends his faithful servants forth
    To prove the nations, to proclaim Salvation's tidings through the earth. Salvation's tidings through the earth.

 

 

Thy Holy Word, 279 - Gardner

 

  1. We love to hear thy holy word Proclaimed in latter days.
    It lifts our hearts; our souls are stirred To glorify thy ways.

 

  1. We love to read thy holy word With quiet thought and prayer.
    Thy Spirit's whisp'rings we have heard; We feel thy constant care.

 

  1. We love to share thy holy word; Thy gospel we proclaim.
    We humbly bear our witness, Lord, Of thy redeeming name.

 

  1. We thank thee for thy holy word; With joy we sing thy praise.
    Oh, help us, Lord, to learn thy word And live it all our days.

 

 

Thy Servants Are Prepared, 261 - Marilyn McMeen Brown

 

  1. Thy servants are prepared To teach thy word abroad,
    To gather in thy sheep To thee, O Lamb of God.

 

  1. Let these, thy servants, speak With heart and voice of youth,
    And fill the world's dark lamps With light, the flame of truth.

 

  1. In all of Zion's stakes Thy love shall conquer night,
    While darkness draws away From thy revealing light.

 

 

Thy Spirit, Lord, Has Stirred Our Souls, 157 - Frank I. Kooyman

 

  1. Thy Spirit, Lord, has stirred our souls, And by its inward shining glow
    We see anew our sacred goals And feel thy nearness here below.
    No burning bush near Sinai Could show thy presence, Lord, more nigh.

 

  1. "Did not our hearts within us burn?" We know the Spirit's fire is here.
    It makes our souls for service yearn; It makes the path of duty clear.
    Lord, may it prompt us, day by day, In all we do, in all we say.

 

 

Thy Will, O Lord, Be Done, 188 - Frank I. Kooyman

 

  1. When in the wondrous realms above Our Savior had been called upon
    To save our world of sin by love, He said, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

 

  1. The King of Kings left worlds of light, Became the meek and lowly One;
    In brightest day or darkest night, He said, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

 

  1. No crown of thorns, no cruel cross Could make our great Redeemer shun.
    He counted his own will but naught, And said, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

 

  1. We take the bread and cup this day In mem'ry of the sinless One,
    And pray for strength, that we may say, "As he, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

'Tis Sweet to Sing the Matchless Love, 177 - George A. Manwaring

 

  1. 'Tis sweet to sing the matchless love Of Him who left his home above
    And came to earth--oh, wondrous plan--To suffer, bleed, and die for man!

(#177 only) For Jesus died on Calvary, That all thru him might ransomed be.
Then sing hosannas to his name; Let heav'n and earth his love proclaim.

 

  1. 'Tis good to meet each Sabbath day And, in his own appointed way,
    Partake the emblems of his death, And thus renew our love and faith.


(#177 only) For Jesus died on Calvary, That all thru him might ransomed be.
Then sing hosannas to his name; Let heav'n and earth his love proclaim.

 

  1. Oh, blessed hour! communion sweet! When children, friends, and teachers meet
    And, in remembrance of his grace, Unite in sweetest songs of praise.


(#177 only) For Jesus died on Calvary, That all thru him might ransomed be.
Then sing hosannas to his name; Let heav'n and earth his love proclaim.

 

  1. (#176 only) For Jesus died on Calvary, That all thru him might ransomed be.
    Then sing hosannas to his name; Let heav'n and earth his love proclaim.

 

 

Today, While the Sun Shines, 229 - L. Clark

 

  1. Today, while the sun shines, work with a will; Today all your duties with patience fulfill.
    Today, while the birds sing, harbor no care; Call life a good gift; call the world fair.
    Today, today, work with a will; Today, today, your duties fulfill.
    Today, today, work while you may; Prepare for tomorrow by working today.

    Today, today, work while you may; Prepare for tomorrow by working today.

 

  1. Today seek for goodness, virtue, and truth, As crown of your life and the grace of your youth.

    Today, today, work with a will; Today, today, your duties fulfill.
    Today, today, work while you may; Prepare for tomorrow by working today.

Truth Eternal, 4 - Parley P. Pratt

 

  1. Truth eternal, truth divine, In thine ancient fullness shine!
    Burst the fetters of the mind From the millions of mankind!

 

  1. Truth again restored to earth, Opened with a prophet's birth.
    Priests of heaven's royal line Bear the keys of truth divine!

 

  1. Truth shall triumph as the light Chases far the misty night.
    Endless ages own its sway, Clad in everlasting day.

 

 

Truth Reflects upon Our Senses, 273 - Eliza R. Snow; chorus by M. E. Abbey

 

  1. Truth reflects upon our senses; Gospel light reveals to some.
    If there still should be offenses, Woe to them by whom they come!
    Judge not, that ye be not judged, Was the counsel Jesus gave;
    Measure given, large or grudged, Just the same you must receive.
    Blessed Savior, thou wilt guide us, Till we reach that blissful shore
    Where the angels wait to join us In thy praise forevermore.

 

  1. Jesus said, "Be meek and lowly," For 'tis high to be a judge;
    If I would be pure and holy, I must love without a grudge.
    It requires a constant labor All his precepts to obey.
    If I truly love my neighbor, I am in the narrow way.
    Blessed Savior, thou wilt guide us, Till we reach that blissful shore
    Where the angels wait to join us In thy praise forevermore.

 

  1. Once I said unto another, "In thine eye there is a mote;
    If thou art a friend, a brother, Hold, and let me pull it out."
    But I could not see it fairly, For my sight was very dim.
    When I came to search more clearly, In mine eye there was a beam.
    Blessed Savior, thou wilt guide us, Till we reach that blissful shore
    Where the angels wait to join us In thy praise forevermore.

 

 

Turn Your Hearts, 291 - Paul L. Anderson and Lynn R. Carson

 

  1. Turn your hearts; the Lord is coming, Malachi the prophet said.
    Turn your hearts in preparation To the work of exaltation For the living and the dead.

 

  1. In the latter days Elijah Will renew the plan sublime.
    He will teach you and remind you Of the promises that bind you To all men throughout all time.

 

  1. Turn your hearts toward your parents--Generations gone before.
    May you seek until you find them; In the temple seal and bind them To your hearts forevermore.

 

  1. Turn in love to all your children--Generations yet to be.
    May your deeds of gospel giving, Temple service, righteous living, Bless them all eternally.

 

 

'Twas Witnessed in the Morning Sky. 12 - Adapted by G. William Richards

 

1.  'Twas witnessed in the morning sky: An angel earthward bound.

This messenger proclaimed anew The gospel's joyful sound.

In pow'r it would be preached on earth By men of God ordained;

All men, all tongues, all nations would Accept and praise his name.

 

2.   In ancient days, the gospel plan Was giv'n of God to men;

In latter days, the gospel is Restored to earth again.

By holy prophets long proclaimed, By Saints and seers adored,

It speaks the everlasting truths Of Jesus Christ, the Lord.

 

3.   Apostles of a former day To modern prophets came;

They brought the priesthood of our Lord To bless the earth again.

The pow'rs of heav'n are opened wide To men of God below;

The knowledge, gifts, and keys are ours, All blessings to bestow.
