Representative Text

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.

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.

O Israel! O Israel!
In all your abidings,
Prepare for your Lord
When you hear these glad tidings.
