Ye Elders of Israel (Men), 319 - Cyrus H. Wheelock

 

  1. Ye elders of Israel, come join now with me And seek out the righteous, where'er they may be--
    In desert, on mountain, on land, or on sea--And bring them to Zion, the pure and the free.
    O Babylon, O Babylon, we bid thee farewell; We're going to the mountains of Ephraim to dwell.

 

  1. The harvest is great, and the lab'rers are few; But if we're united, we all things can do.
    We'll gather the wheat from the midst of the tares And bring them from bondage, from sorrows and snares.
    O Babylon, O Babylon, we bid thee farewell; We're going to the mountains of Ephraim to dwell.

 

  1. We'll go to the poor, like our Captain of old, And visit the weary, the hungry, and cold;
    We'll cheer up their hearts with the news that he bore And point them to Zion and life evermore.
    O Babylon, O Babylon, we bid thee farewell; We're going to the mountains of Ephraim to dwell.

 

 

Ye Simple Souls Who Stray, 118 - Charles Wesley

 

  1. Ye simple souls who stray Far from the path of peace,
    That lonely, unfrequented way To life and happiness,
    Why will ye folly love, And throng the downward road,
    And hate the wisdom from above, And mock the sons of God?

 

  1. Madness and misery Ye count our life beneath,
    And nothing great or good can see Or glorious in our death.
    But thru the Holy Ghost We witness better things,
    For he whose blood is all our boast Has made us priests and kings.

 

  1. Riches unsearchable In Jesus' love we know,
    And pleasures springing from the well Of life our souls o'erflow.
    As we seek heav'nly bliss, Angels our steps attend,
    And God himself our Father is, And Jesus is our Friend.

 

  1. With him we walk in white; We in his image shine;
    Our robes are robes of glorious light, Our righteousness divine.
    On all the kings of earth With pity we look down;
    And claim, in virtue of our birth, A never-fading crown.

 

 

Ye Who Are Called to Labor (Men), 321 - Mary Judd Page

 

  1. Ye who are called to labor and minister for God,
    Blest with the royal priesthood, appointed by his word
    To preach among the nations the news of gospel grace,
    And publish on the mountains salvation, truth, and peace:

 

  1. Oh, let not vain ambition nor worldly glory stain
    Your minds so pure and holy; acquit yourselves like men.
    While lifting up your voices like trumpets long and loud,
    Say to the slumb'ring nations: "Prepare to meet your God!"

 

  1. Then cease from all light speeches, lightmindedness, and pride;
    Pray always without ceasing and in the truth abide.
    The Comforter will teach you, his richest blessings send.
    Your Savior will be with you forever to the end.

 

  1. Rich blessings there await you, and God will give you faith.
    You shall be crowned with glory and triumph over death,
    And soon you'll come to Zion, and, bearing each his sheaf,
    No more shall taste of sorrow, but glorious crowns receive.

 

 

You Can make the Pathway Bright, 228 - Helen Silcott Dungan

 

  1. You can make the pathway bright, Fill the soul with heaven's light, If there's sunshine in your heart;
    Turning darkness into day, As the shadows fly away, If there's sunshine in your heart today.
    If there's sunshine in your heart, You can send a shining ray That will turn the night today;
    And your cares will all depart, If there's sunshine in your heart today.

 

  1. You can speak the gentle word To the heart with anger stirred, If there's sunshine in your heart;
    Tho it seems a little thing, It will heaven's blessings bring, If there's sunshine in your heart today.
    If there's sunshine in your heart, You can send a shining ray That will turn the night today;
    And your cares will all depart, If there's sunshine in your heart today.

 

  1. You can do a kindly deed To your neighbor in his need, If there's sunshine in your heart;
    And his burden you will share As you lift his load of care, If there's sunshine in your heart today.
    If there's sunshine in your heart, You can send a shining ray That will turn the night today;
    And your cares will all depart, If there's sunshine in your heart today.

 

  1. You can live a happy life In this world of toil and strife, If there's sunshine in your heart;
    And your soul will glow with love From the perfect Light above, If there's sunshine in your heart today.
    If there's sunshine in your heart, You can send a shining ray That will turn the night today;
    And your cares will all depart, If there's sunshine in your heart today.

 

 

Zion Stands with Hills Surrounded, 43 - Thomas Kelly

 

  1. Zion stands with hills surrounded--Zion, kept by pow'r divine.
    All her foes shall be confounded, Though the world in arms combine.
    Happy Zion, Happy Zion, What a favored lot is thine!

 

  1. Ev'ry human tie may perish, Friend to friend unfaithful prove,
    Mothers cease their own to cherish, Heav'n and earth at last remove.
    But no changes, But no changes Can attend Jehovah's love.

 

  1. In the furnace God may prove thee, Thence to bring thee forth more bright,
    But can never cease to love thee; Thou art precious in his sight.
    God is with thee, God is with thee; Thou shalt triumph in his might.
