As Though I Had Been There
1. Once Jesus sat upon a hill and taught a multitude
Of faith and love and peace and joy—He taught them to do good.
2. Once Nephi, Alma, Samuel, John were prophets God had sent.
They taught His children faith and hope; They taught them to repent.
The scriptures bring these words to me as though I had been there,
And when I read them, I can feel my Savior’s tender care.
