Glad Tidings from Cumorah

First-Place Hymn
1. Glad tidings from Cumorah!
An angel has returned to earth
To yield a book of priceless worth
Into a prophet’s hands.
The fulness of the gospel
The Savior gave his “other sheep”
Breaks forth, as with a flood, to sweep
All nations, tribes, and lands.
2. Oh, hear the voice of gladness!
An ancient record is restored;
Another witness of the Lord
Has spoken from the dust.
Its message must be sounded
As with a trump in ev’ry tongue,
For truth out of the earth has sprung
To gather out the just.
