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.
