Lyrics

  1. 1. Let Zion in her beauty rise;
    Her light begins to shine.
    Ere long her King will rend the skies,
    Majestic and divine,
    The gospel spreading thru the land,
    A people to prepare
    To meet the Lord and Enoch's band
    Triumphant in the air.
  2. 2. Ye heralds, sound the golden trump
    To earth's remotest bound.
    Go spread the news from pole to pole
    In all the nations round:
    That Jesus in the clouds above,
    With hosts of angels too,
    Will soon appear, his Saints to save,
    His enemies subdue.
  3. 3. That glorious rest will then commence
    Which prophets did foretell,
    When Saints will reign with Christ on earth,
    And in his presence dwell
    A thousand years, oh, glorious day!
    Dear Lord, prepare my heart
    To stand with thee on Zion's mount
    And nevermore to part.
  4. Text: Edward Partridge, 1793-1840. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.
    Music: Anon., Württemberg, Germany, ca. 1784
