Cheer, Saints, Cheer!

Cheer, Saints Cheer

Today, we have a contribution of a cheerful, long-forgotten LDS hymn contributed by Kurt Kammeyer. Kurt has taken on an ambitious project about LDS Hymns, which is highlighted below:

A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of the Latter Day Saints:

In early 1836, Frederick G. Williams and William W. Phelps published the first hymnal of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Kirtland, Ohio. It contained ninety hymns, but only the words were included – the Saints were expected to know the tunes by heart. This new publication represents the first time that the 1835 LDS hymnal has ever been published along with its tunes.
