Hymn Text: The New Jerusalem

Date: March 30th, 2017
Title: The New Jerusalem
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: New Jerusalem, Zion

1.
The New Jerusalem will rise
When God gives the command,
When He the light and truth supplies
To obey this command.

If we would enter through her gates
He must be wholly clean
By cleansing envy, pride, and hate
Into a holy sheen.

2.
The New Jerusalem won’t fall;
A thousand years she’ll stand.
The home of all who heed God’s call
Who witness His own hand.

Great temples on its streets will rise
The air will fill with song,
And truth will rain from heaven’s skies
As angels sing along.

3.
The New Jerusalem is built
By those with purest hearts,
Who have been washed from earthly guilt
Who did not wait to start,

To fill their lamps, to wash their robes
To watch and to prepare.
In every region of the globe
Until God calls them there.

Hymn Text: The World Offers Sandy Foundations

Title: The World Offers Sandy Foundations
Meter: 9 8 9 8 8 8
Topic: foundations, Christ, preparation

1.
The world offers sandy foundations
That cannot through stormy days stand.
That will not support aspirations
No matter what we’ve hoped or planned.

O, be wise, what can we say more?
Build on Christ’s rock at your core.

2.
The church offers solid foundations
Rooted in Christ so they remain.
It’s building in all the world’s nations
So that each a high tower obtain.

O, be wise, what can we say more?
Build on Christ’s rock at your core.

3.
The time grows short to build foundations
The storms grow more frequent and bold
God’s word now sounds to all creations—
For this is the last time foretold.

O, be wise, what can we say more?
Build on Christ’s rock at your core.

Hymn Text: Trust in the Words of Prophets

Date: March 27th, 2017
Title: Trust in the Words of Prophets
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic:

1.
Trust in the words of prophets though
They are but mortal men.
For God His will to them does show
And speaks his counsel when

The fiery darts of Satan fly
And mists of darkness blind.
When nations for God’s succor cry
And know not where to find.

2.
Heed all the words of prophets well
For they can see afar.
And every one since Adam fell
Shines like a guiding star.

They see the craftiness of men
Who lie in wait, deceive.
They quickly can alert us then
And grant us a reprieve.

3.
Keep all the words that prophets speak
As treasure from the earth
For they grant power to the weak
They are of greatest worth.

When even the elect can stray
Stand firm on holy ground:
The truth that will not pass away
In revelations found.

Hymn Text: From a Single Prayer

Date: March 26th, 2017
Title: From A Single Prayer
Meter: 6 6 6 6 D
Topic:

1.
A single, sacred grove,
A single fervent prayer,
A single boy who strove
To find his answers there.

A single question brought,
A single earnest plea,
A single person taught
About eternity.

2.
Now many temples gleam,
Now many prophets speak,
Now many truths can stream
To bless all those who seek.

Now many scriptures teach,
Now many songs arise,
Now many lands can reach,
The purest gospel prize.

3.
Soon all will hear God’s voice,
Soon all will understand,
Soon all will have the choice,
To take His holy hand.

Soon all will be made new,
Soon all will be complete.
Soon all trials are through,
And our rest will be sweet.

Hymn Text: At the Last Day

Date: March 25th, 2017
Title: At the Last Day
Meter: 10 10 10 10 10 10
Topic: supplication, benediction

1.
Our words will condemn us at the last day
Every unkind or false thing we say,
Every thoughtless remark that we allow
So then it is best to prevent them now.

For those who repent forgiveness will find,
When bringing forth fruit with all heart and mind.

2.
Our thoughts will condemn us at the last hour
When we abuse this God-given power
To conjure up sin and mortal desires
Instead of the goodness, which God requires.

For those who repent forgiveness will find,
When bringing forth fruit with all heart and mind.

3.
Our deeds will condemn us at the last time,
When we reject the gospel sublime
And act in pride to stray on our own,
Only Christ can bring us at one, atone.

For those who repent forgiveness will find,
When bringing forth fruit with all heart and mind.
