Young Men of Zion
Young men of Zion, all who bear the priesthood Aaron bore,
Who watch and teach, expound, exhort as ancients did before.
Remember John the Baptist who conferred this pow’r of old;
Let us prepare the way of Christ As he did, strong and bold.
O be strong in the Lord, In the power of his might,
Than come, put on his armor and stand up for the right.
For we bear his priesthood and he gives our call;
With faith in his power, we give the Lord our all!
2. Young men of Zion, let us do our duty to our God
And magnify our callings as we walk where Christ has trod;
Administ’ring the sacrament and minist’ring with love,
We baptize to unlock the gate that leads to heaven above.
3. Young men of Zion, let us live that we may soon obtain
The priesthood of Melchizedek and temple blessings gain.
We’ll go and teach the nations all, endowed with heav’nly pow’r,
And lead our fam’lies unto Christ as watchmen on the tow’r!
