Priesthood

Submitted Hymn Texts, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

Priesthood is the power of God

That organized the earth,

That taught the plan of happiness,

And gave our spirits birth.

 

Priesthood comes by covenant,

By ordination true,

Revealed with the sacred trust

To do what Christ would do.

 

Priesthood power is exercised

In harmony and prayer,

By kindness and humility,

By faithful, loving care.

 

Priesthood duty will require

The best a man can give

Of service and devotion pure,

To live as Jesus lives.

 

Priesthood keys have been restored

To bless our latter day,

To seal forever families

And show a brighter way.

 

Priesthood power in every land

Will build a growing fire

Of holy faith and brotherhood,

To lift and to inspire.
