Hymn 12. PM Praise to God, immortal praise

Anonymous / adapted by William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. Praise to God, immortal praise,

For the love that crowns our days;

Bounteous source of every joy,

Let thy praise our tongues employ;
2. For the blessings of the field,

For the stores the gardens yield,

For the vine's exalted juice,

For the gen'rous olive's use;
3. Flocks that whiten all the plain,

Yellow sheaves of ripen'd grain,

Clouds that drop their fat'ning dews,

Suns that temp'rate warmth diffuse;
4. All that spring with bounteous hand

Scatters o'er the smiling land;

All that lib'ral autumn pours

From her rich o'erflowing stores;
5. Thanks to thee our God we owe;

Source from whence all blessings flow!

And for these our souls shall raise

Grateful vows and solemn praise.
Hymn 13. PM Guide us, O thou great Jehovah

William Williams / adapted by William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. Guide us, O thou great Jehovah,

Saints upon the promis'd land;

We are weak but thou art able,

Hold us with thy powerful hand:

Holy Spirit,

Feed us till the Savior comes.
2. Open, Jesus, Zion's fountains:

Let her richest blessings come;

Let the fiery, cloudy pillar

Guard us in this holy home;

Great Redeemer,

Bring, O bring the welcome day!
3. When the earth begins to tremble,

Bid our fearful thoughts be still;

When thy judgements spread destruction,

Keep us safe on Zion's hill,

Singing praises,

Songs of glory, unto thee.
Hymn 14. CM We're not ashamed to own our Lord

adapted/edited/written by William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. We're not ashamed to own our Lord,

And worship him on earth;

We love to learn his holy word,

And know what souls are worth.
2. When Jesus comes as flaming flame,

For to reward the just,

The world will know the only name,

In which the saints can trust.
3. When he comes down in heav'n on earth,

With all his holy band,

Before creation's second birth,

We hope with him to stand.
4. Then will he give us a new name,

With robes of righteousness,

And in the New Jerusalem,

Eternal happiness.
Hymn 15. CM Joy to the world! the Lord will come!

Isaac Watts / adapted by William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. Joy to the world! the Lord will come!

And earth receive her King;

Let ev'ry heart prepare him room,

And saints and angels sing.
2. Rejoice! rejoice! when Jesus reigns,

And saints their songs employ:

While fields and flood, rocks, hills and plains,

Repeat the sounding joy.
3. No more will sin and sorrow grow,

Nor thorns infest the ground;

He'll come and make the blessing flow

Far as the curse was found.
4. Rejoice! rejoice! in the Most High,

While Israel spread abroad,

Like stars that glitter in the sky,

And ever worship God.
Hymn 16. P M An angel came down from the mansions of glory

William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. An angel came down from the mansions of glory,

And told that a record was hid in Cumorah,

Containing the fulness of Jesus's gospel;

And also the cov'nant to gather his people.

O Israel! O Israel!

In all your abidings,

Prepare for your Lord

When you hear these glad tidings.
2. A heavenly treasure: a book full of merit:

It speaks from the dust by the pow'r of the Spirit:

A voice from the Savior that saints can rely on,

To watch for the day when he brings again Zion.

Israel! O Israel!

In all your abidings,

Prepare for your Lord

When you hear these glad tidings.
3. Listen O isles, and give ear ev'ry nation,

For great things await you in this generation:

The kingdom of Jesus, in Zion shall flourish;

The righteous will gather; the wicked must perish.

O Israel! O Israel!

In all your abidings,

Prepare for your Lord

When you hear these glad tidings.
Hymn 17. PM To him that made the world

William W. Phelps (LDS)

The sun the moon and stars,

And all that in them is,

With days, and months and years;

To him that died

That we might live,

Our thanks and songs

We freely give.
2. Our hope in things to come,

The Spirit's quick'ning power,

Should turn our hearts to him,

Where heavenly blessings are:

Of things above,

And always know,

That God is love.
3. When he comes down in heav'n,

And earth again is blest,

Then all the heirs of him,

Will find the promis'd rest.

With all the just,

Then they may sing,

God is with us

And we with him.

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:

And none will molest them from morn until even,

And earth will appear as the garden of Eden,

And Jesus will say to all Israel: Come home!

But cease to do evil and ever be one;

And while the ungodly are fearing and tremble,

We'll watch for the day when the Savior shall come:
4. When all that was promis'd the saints will be given,

And none will molest them from morn until even,

And the earth will appear as the garden of Eden,

And Jesus will say to all Israel: Come home!
5. In faith we'll rely on the arm of Jehovah,

To guide through 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:
6. Then all that was promis'd the saints will be given,

And they will be crown'd as the angel of heaven:

And earth will appear as the garden of Eden,

And Christ and his people will ever be one.

When all the saints together join,

In songs of love, and all divine.

While loud hosannas we'll proclaim,

Come down to converse with men.

And saints and angels, join to sing,

Till all the throngs of heav'n above,

Shall join the saints in songs of love.

And earth, and air, and skies, and seas,

Conspire to sound aloud his praise.
Hymn 23. PM This earth was once a garden place

With all her glories common;

And men did live a holy race,

And worship Jesus face to face,

In Adam-ondi-Ahman.
2. We read that Enoch walk'd with God,

Above the pow'r of Mammon:

While Zion spread herself abroad,

And saints and angels sung aloud

In Adam-ondi-Ahman.

Beyond old Israel's Canaan:

Her fame was known from east to west;

Her peace was great, and pure the rest

Of Adam-ondi-Ahman.
4. Hosanna to such days to come—

The Savior's second comin'—

When all the earth in glorious bloom,

Affords the saints a holy home

Like Adam-ondi-Ahman.

For to seek eternal life,

That great reward,

And partake the sacrament,

In remembrance of the Lord.

While we bring our gifts around,

Of broken hearts,

As a willing sacrifice,

Showing what his grace imparts.

When the saints are gather'd home,

To praise the Lord,

In eternity of bliss,

All as one with one accord.

Repent and live;

Though your sins are crimson red,

O repent and he'll forgive.

For the saints to fast and pray,

As God ordains,

For his goodness and his love

While the Sabbath day remains.
Hymn 25. PM When Joseph his brethren beheld

John Newton / adapted by William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. When Joseph his brethren beheld,

Afflicted and trembling with fear,

His heart with compassion was fill'd,

From weeping he could not forbear.
2. Awhile his behavior was rough,

To bring their past sins to their mind:

But when they were humbled enough

He hasten'd to show himself kind.
3. How little they thought it was he

Whom they had ill-treated and sold!

How great their confusion must be,

As soon as his name he had told!
4. "I am Joseph, your brother," he said,

"And still to my heart you are dear;

You sold me, and thought I was dead,

But God, for your sakes, sent me here."
5. Though greatly distressed before,

When charg'd with purloining the cup,

They now were confounded much more,

Not one of them durst to look up.
6. "Can Joseph, whom we would have slain

Forgive us the evil we did?

And will he our households maintain?

O, this is a brother indeed!"
Hymn 26. PM Now we'll sing with one accord

William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. Now we'll sing with one accord,

For a prophet of the Lord,

Bringing forth his precious word,

Cheers the saints as anciently.
2. When the world in darkness lay,

Lo, he sought the better way,

And he heard the Savior say,

"Go and prune my vineyard, son!"
3. And an angel surely then,

For a blessing unto men,

Brought the priesthood back again,

In its ancient purity.
4. Even Joseph he inspires:

Yea, his heart he truly fires,

When the light that he desires

For the work of righteousness.
5. And the book of Mormon, true,

With its cov'nant ever new,

For the Gentile and the Jew,

He translated sacredly.
6. The commandments to the church,

Which the saints will always search,

(Where the joys of heaven perch,)

Came through him from Jesus Christ.
7. Precious are his years to come,

While the righteous gather home,

For the great Millennium,

Where he'll rest in blessedness.
8. Prudent in this world of woes,

He will triumph o'er his foes,

While the realm of Zion grows

Purer for eternity.
