Up, Awake, Ye Defenders of Zion, 248 - Charles W. Penrose

 

  1. Up, awake, ye defenders of Zion! The foe's at the door of your homes;
    Let each heart be the heart of a lion, Unyielding and proud as he roams.
    Remember the trials of Missouri; Forget not the courage of Nauvoo.
    When the enemy host is before you, Stand firm and be faithful and true.
    Stand firm and be faithful and true, Stand firm and be faithful and true;
    When the enemy host is before you, Stand firm and be faithful and true.

 

  1. By His power is Zion surrounded; Her warriors are noble and brave,
    And their faith on Jehovah is founded, Whose power is mighty to save.
    In each soldier a brave heart is beating, Tho our numbers, compared, may be few.
    We'll not rest till our foes are retreating, And we'll always be faithful and true.
    And we'll always be faithful and true, And we'll always be faithful and true
    We'll not rest till our foes are retreating, And we'll always be faithful and true.

 

  1. Tho, assisted by legions infernal, The plundering foemen advance,
    With a host from the regions eternal We'll scatter their troops at a glance.
    Soon the kingdom will be independent; In wonder the nations will view
    Our Zion in glory resplendent; Then let us be faithful and true.
    Then let us be faithful and true, Then let us be faithful and true;
    Our Zion in glory resplendent; Then let us be faithful and true.

 

 

Upon the Cross of Calvary, 184 - Vilate Raile

 

  1. Upon the cross of Calvary They crucified our Lord
    And sealed with blood the sacrifice That sanctified his word.

 

  1. Upon the cross he meekly died For all mankind to see
    That death unlocks the passageway Into eternity.

 

  1. Upon the cross our Savior died, But, dying, brought new birth
    Through resurrection's miracle To all the sons of earth.

 

 

We Are All Enlisted, 250 - Anonymous, The New Golden Chain, New York, 1866

 

  1. We are all enlisted till the conflict is o'er; Happy are we! Happy are we!
    Soldiers in the army, there's a bright crown in store; We shall win and wear it by and by.
    Haste to the battle, quick to the field; Truth is our helmet, buckler, and shield.
    Stand by our colors; proudly they wave! We're joyfully, joyfully marching to our home.
    We are all enlisted till the conflict is o'er; Happy are we! Happy are we!
    Soldiers in the army, there's a bright crown in store; We shall win and wear it by and by.

 

  1. Hark! the sound of battle sounding loudly and clear; Come join the ranks! Come join the ranks!
    We are waiting now for soldiers; who'll volunteer? Rally round the standard of the cross.
    Hark! 'tis our Captain calls you today; Lose not a moment, make no delay!
    Fight for our Savior; come, come away! We're joyfully, joyfully, marching to our home.
    We are all enlisted till the conflict is o'er; Happy are we! Happy are we!
    Soldiers in the army, there's a bright crown in store; We shall win and wear it by and by.

 

  1. Fighting for a kingdom, and the world is our foe; Happy are we! Happy are we!
    Glad to join the army, we will sing as we go; We shall gain the vict'ry by and by.
    Dangers may gather--why should we fear? Jesus, our Leader, ever is near.
    He will protect us, comfort, and cheer. We're joyfully, joyfully marching to our home.
    We are all enlisted till the conflict is o'er; Happy are we! Happy are we!
    Soldiers in the army, there's a bright crown in store; We shall win and wear it by and by.

 

 

We Are Marching On to Glory, 225 - John M. Chamberlain

 

  1. We are marching on to glory; We are working for our crown.
    We will make our armor brighter And never lay it down.
    We are marching, marching homeward To that bright land afar.
    We work for life eternal; It is our guiding star.

 

  1. Then day by day we are marching; To heaven we are bound.
    Each good act brings us nearer That home where we'll be crowned.
    We are marching, marching homeward To that bright land afar.
    We work for life eternal; It is our guiding star.

 

  1. Then, with the ransomed children That throng the starry throne,
    We will praise our Lord and Savior, His pow'r and mercy own.
    We are marching, marching homeward To that bright land afar.
    We work for life eternal; It is our guiding star.

 

 

We Are Sowing, 216 - Anonymous, Pure Diamonds, Cleveland, 1872

 

  1. We are sowing, daily sowing Countless seeds of good and ill,
    Scattered on the level lowland, Cast upon the windy hill;
    Seeds that sink in rich, brown furrows, Soft with heaven's gracious rain;
    Seeds that rest upon the surface Of the dry, unyielding plain;

 

  1. Seeds that fall amid the stillness Of the lonely mountain glen;
    Seeds cast out in crowded places, Trodden under foot of men;
    Seeds by idle hearts forgotten, Flung at random on the air;
    Seeds by faithful souls remembered, Sown in tears and love and prayer;

 

  1. Seeds that lie unchanged, unquickened, Lifeless on the teeming mold;
    Seeds that live and grow and flourish When the sower's hand is cold.
    By a whisper sow we blessings; By a breath we scatter strife.
    In our words and thoughts and actions Lie the seeds of death and life.

 

  1. Thou who knowest all our weakness, Leave us not to sow alone!
    Bid thine angels guard the furrows Where the precious grain is sown,
    Till the fields are crown'd with glory, Filled with mellow, ripened ears,
    Filled with fruit of life eternal From the seed we sowed in tears.

 

 

We Ever Pray for Thee, 23 - H. A. Tuckett

 

  1. We ever pray for thee, our prophet dear, That God will give to thee comfort and cheer;
    As the advancing years furrow thy brow, Still may the light within shine bright as now,
    Still may the light within shine bright as now.

 

  1. We ever pray for thee with all our hearts, That strength be given thee to do thy part,
    To guide and counsel us from day to day, To shed a holy light around our way,
    To shed a holy light around our way.

 

  1. We ever pray for thee with fervent love; And as the children's prayer is heard above,
    Thou shalt be ever blest, and God will give All that is meet and best while thou shalt live,
    All that is meet and best while thou shalt live.

 

 

We Give Thee But Thine Own, 218 - William Walsham How

 

  1. We give thee but thine own, Whate'er the gift may be,
    For all we have is thine alone, A trust, O Lord, from thee.

 

  1. May we thy bounties thus As stewards true receive,
    And gladly, as thou blessest us, To thee our first-fruits give.

 

  1. To comfort and to bless, To find a balm for woe,
    To tend the lone and fatherless Is angels' work below.

 

  1. And we believe thy word, Tho dim our faith may be;
    Whate'er we do for thine, O Lord, We do it unto thee.

 

 

We Have Partaken of Thy Love, 155 - Mabel Jones Gabbott

 

  1. We have partaken of thy love, O Lord, this sacred hour;
    We have renewed our covenants And felt thy cleansing pow'r, And felt thy cleansing pow'r.

 

  1. Let us go forth refreshed, resolved To serve our fellowmen,
    Forgive our neighbors, live thy word, Until we come again, Until we come again.

 

  1. Raising to thee in song and word Our praise, most holy One,
    We ask thy benediction, Lord, Thru thy Beloved Son, Thru thy Beloved Son.

 

 

We Listen to a Prophet's Voice, 22 - Marylou Cunningham Leavitt

 

  1. We listen to a prophet's voice and hear the Savior too.
    With love he bids us do the work the Lord would have us do.
    The Savior calls his chosen seer to preach the word of God,
    That men might learn to find the path marked by the iron rod.

 

  1. In ev'ry land, in ev'ry tongue, our prophet will be heard;
    How swiftly round the world his voice reveals the gospel word!
    The sacred message that he brings will witness and agree
    With ev'ry prophet called of God throughout earth's history.

 

  1. Hosanna! Let our praise ascend unto the Savior's throne;
    Rejoice! The prophet has confirmed that by Him we are known.
    Attend, ye earth! The prophet speaks; come listen and obey.
    He is the man who holds the keys of priesthood pow'r today.

  1. We meet again in Sabbath School On this the Lord's own day,
    Where joyful gladness is the rule, And love doth bear its sway;
    Where all may join in songs of praise To him who reigns above,
    And thankful hearts and voices raise For his redeeming love.

 

  1. We meet again, yes, gladly meet, To learn the will of God,
    For wisdom seeking, that our feet May walk the narrow road.
    O Father, let thy Spirit dwell In ev'ry willing heart,
    That we may love and serve thee well, And ne'er from thee depart.

 

  1. Oh, happy day on which we meet With friends and teachers dear,

And with delight, in peaceful night, They heard the angels singing:
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!

A humble bed wherein was laid The wondrous little Stranger.
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!

And still is sung in ev'ry tongue The angels' song of glory:
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!

 

4. The heav'nly star its rays afar On ev'ry land is throwing,
And shall not cease till holy peace In all the earth is growing.
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!
