HYMN 16. P. M.

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 your 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 Saviour that saints can rely on, To watch 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.

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. [22]

O Israel! O Israel!

In all your abidings,

Prepare for your Lord When you hear these glad tidings.
