Title: The Anthem of the Restoration
Meter: 10 8 10 8
Topic: missionary work, rejoicing, the last days

The anthem of the Restoration sing,
Sing with voices simple, yet strong.
Each new convert a harmony can bring,
Blending each voice in timeless song.

Now singing from the bounty of full hearts,
Singing with clarity of mind.
The Spirit each new verse to us imparts,
Ensures that we new singers find.

The anthem of the restoration shout,
So that none may wallow in sleep.
Let every land know what we are about,
It is not a secret to keep.

Now singing with the confidence of love,
Inviting all that hear, “Believe!”
And joining with the choruses above,
Melody and message receive.

The anthem of the restoration raise
Nothing is as sweet to the ear.
For we now live with in the latter days.
And those who do not listen may fear.

The dissonance of devils may distract,
The consonance of Christ will stay.
And in the end it never will detract,
All other songs will pass away.

Meter: 8 8 8 8
Topic: Zion, purity, service

Each kindly word knits hearts as one
United with God’s holy Son
A mighty fabric, sturdy, sure
A Zion people, free and pure.

Each kindly deed binds saints as one,
United to see Gods work done.
A true alliance, pure and bright,
That presses back against the night.

Each kindly life is like a seed
That sprouts and blooms to banish need.
A tiny spark that large can grow,
Until all may bask in its glow.

Hymn Text: The Unfamiliar Path

Date: November 17th, 2017
Title: The Unfamiliar Path
Meter: 7 7 7 7 8 8
Topic: progression, obstacles, endurance

Though life may change direction
Down an unfamiliar path,
It points toward perfection.
And it leads away from wrath.

For though the road is bittersweet
Our Father in the end will greet.

The life turns unexpected,
And it seems to make no sense.
By heaven we are directed
And will have a recompense.

For though the road is bittersweet
Our Father in the end will greet.

Though life may be fraught with pain,
There still is order to it.
We should never fear the rain,
For we know God works through it.

For though the road is bittersweet
Our Father in the end will greet.

Hymn Text: Service Is Celestial

Date: November 16th, 2017
Title: Service Is Celestial
Meter: 6 6 6 6
Topic: service, charity, grace

Service is the fiber
Of a celestial life,
For only the striver,
Will overcome the strife,

That in Telesital lands,
Will fester like a weed.
And only service stands,
While others sink, in need.

Service is the plaster,
That binds foundation stones,
Mortar of the Master,
Who builds and who atones.

Saints who join in serving,
Will fit together too.
For all are deserving,
Of what saints say and do.

Service is the manna,
That feeds the faithful few,
Who shout and sing “Hosanna!”
Until the day is through.

Relying on the source,
Of living water, bread,
To feed, and set their course,
Toward His bright homestead.

Hymn Text: Not That Road

Date: November 15th, 2017
Title: Not That Road
Meter: 8 8 8 8
Topic: trust, faith, perspective

Sometimes the Lord says, “Not that road.
I have a better path for thee.
I too will walk and share the load.
To reach where I wish you to be.

Sometimes the Lord says, “Come this way.
Then I will guide to better things.
You will not grow if here you stay.
But I will make you queens and kings.”

Sometimes the Lord says, “Don’t look back.
You must not pine for what has been.
For I will see you do not lack,
Into the future, now and then.”

Sometimes the Lord says, “Trust my ways.
You cannot see all things I can.
Far greater is my holy gaze.
All things serve my holy plan.”

Hymn Text: Truth Mandates our Allegiance

Date: November 14th, 2017
Title: Truth Mandates our Allegiance
Meter: 8 8 8 8
Topic: endurance, intelligence, glory

Truth mandates our allegiance high,
And only it can satisfy,
The hearts and minds of holy ones,
The brightest of God’s daughters, sons.

Truth mandates our endurance long,
To find our voice within God’s song.
And still to sing with voices frail,
Until the final notes prevail.

Truth mandates that we do not bend
With ev’ry wind and ev’ry trend,
But planted firm as roots in stone,
We do not ever stand alone.

Truth mandates that we take God’s stand,
Despite what all the world has planned.
Paying no heed to those who mock,
Staying safely in God’s flock.

Hymn Text: Two Masters

Date: November 13th, 2017
Title: Two Masters
Meter: 8 7 8 7
Topic: two masters, the devil, the good shepherd

God organizes and creates
The devil only destroys.
The devil forces men with hate,
But God responds with joy.

God reassures us and consoles,
The devil speaks with fear.
The devil seeks us to control,
But God will dry each tear.

God nourishes and prunes each tree,
The devil sews his weeds.
The devil sews tares wantonly.
While God still plants His seeds.

The devil takes, in misery,
While God with gladness gives.
The devil from his sheep will flee,
But for His flock God lives.
