1 Book of Mormon, hid for ages
On Cumorah's lonely hill,
Written by those ancient sages
Whom Jehovah taught his will;
Glad we hail it,
Fullness of the gospel still!
2 Hail this record, saints in Zion,
Hidden by Moroni's hand
Till the God our souls rely on
Unto Joseph gave command
To translate it,
Send it forth to every land.
3 Hail the glorious light of Nephi,
Hail the truths that Alma taught;
We will trust in God like Lehi,
Seek the Lord as Mormon sought;
But the truth and sell it not.
4 Israel, gather round this standard;
Laman, see thy guiding star;
Judah, rally round thy banner;
Come, ye Gentiles, from afar;
Book of Mormon!
It is truth's triumphal car!
