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.
