Come, Thou Glorious Day of Promise

This beloved LDS Hymn first appeared in our Manchester Hymnal some time between 1847 and 1887; it has been included in every LDS hymnal since that time, set to the tune RUTH. Here is an alternate arrangement, set to an earlier shape-note tune entitled SABBATH MORNING. It first appeared with a article in the Times and Seasons, written by Alexander Neibaur, who was one of the first Jewish converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a friend to Joseph Smith. It is based on a text from the Psalms.
