NEW HYMNS.

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.

A heavenly treasure; a book full of merit; It speaks from the dust, by the power of the Spirit; A voice from the Savior that saints can rely on, To prepare for the day when he brings again Zion.

O Israel! O Israel!

In all your abidings,

Prepare for your Lord When you hear these glad tidings.

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.

TO him that made the world, 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.

Our hope in things to come, The Spirit’s quick’ning power, Should turn our hearts to him, Where heavenly blessings are: That we may sing

Of things above,

And always know,

That God is love.

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.
