1. A key was turned in latter days,A blessing to restore--A gift of charity and peace--To earth forevermore.Our Father, we would turn our heartsTo those who seek thy face,Give hope and comfort to the poorIn mem'ry of thy grace.
2. A hand of mercy we'll extend;Thy Son has shown the way.And light and knowledge will attendOur service in his name.O sisters, let us join our hands;We'll humbly seek his face,Assure our hearts before our LordBy deeds of love and praise.
