    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.
