The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

Truth Restored

The Lord teaches us to learn, pray and obey.
One young boy sought to partake of grace,
From the Good Book he earnestly came,
Into the woods to inquire upon God’s name.

In restoring all as at first,
God has brought forth truth from the earth.
His call to all is now heard.
It is the pearl of greatest worth.

Chorus 1:
Come to Zion and rejoice!
Come listen to a prophet’s voice!
All saints rise up to stand worthy!
We are not to fear the ungodly!

No eye has seen, nor ear heard,
Nor heart conceived, the plans reserved,
For those who love, and minister,
For we need no longer roam as strangers.

This life is our blessed time of test,
To prove true to His very best!
Those found on the left of God rebellious,
While those on His right hand, made glorious!

Let us press on with the faithful,
As we joyfully unify, lift and live,
For at last the Lord will come with grace full,
To save, dry tears and recompense.

Come in, unto the supper table,
Drink and eat, the Savior’s sacred offering.
Partake again, and He will make you able,
Beginning with your holy healing.

Chorus 2:
Come, follow the King of Kings in glorious covenant!
Enjoy the blessings of His eternal government!
He is the One we’ve been searching for!
The Messiah, Redeemer, Emmanuel and Lord!

Starting Over – A New Birth

Born Again

(In Law and Spirit)

To take one’s heart,
And meld it with another,
Is the perfect place to start,
When sharing with a brother.

To break one’s heart,
In the service of each other,
Is to perfect the hidden part,
Which cries out for a Father.

No one has the trust of any,
Like a father and son,
For in the eyes of many,
This world would be undone.

If not for mentors now,
On our earthly home abode,
We would never humbly bow,
But be strangers to our load.

But to find in us ourselves,
And carry what we cross,
We must know as did the Twelve,
And ever count the cost.

Oh Lord we love the ones we hold,
While on our journey home,
And long to be as in days of old,
When before on earth to roam.

But lightened on a brighter path,
For hence our pathway trod,
We’ll receive all that our Father hath,
And never depart the iron rod.

(The iron rod depicts the word of God)
