Lyrics

  1. 1. Come, listen to a prophet’s voice,
    And hear the word of God,
    And in the way of truth rejoice,
    And sing for joy aloud.
    We’ve found the way the prophets went
    Who lived in days of yore.
    Another prophet now is sent
    This knowledge to restore.
  2. 2. The gloom of sullen darkness spread
    Thru earth’s extended space
    Is banished by our living Head,
    And God has shown his face.
    Thru erring schemes in days now past
    The world has gone astray;
    Yet Saints of God have found at last
    The straight and narrow way.
  3. 3. ’Tis not in man they put their trust
    Nor on his arm rely.
    Full well assured, all are accursed
    Who Jesus Christ deny.
    The Savior to his people saith,
    “Let all my words obey,
    And signs shall follow living faith,
    Down to the latest day.”
  4. 4. Then heed the words of truth and light
    That flow from fountains pure.
    Yea, keep His law with all thy might
    Till thine election’s sure,
    Till thou shalt hear the holy voice
    Assure eternal reign,
    While joy and cheer attend thy choice,
    As one who shall obtain.
