Hymn Text: God’s Own Heir

Title: God’s Own Heir
Meter: 8 8 8 8 8 8

1.
We are not simply servants here
We are not simply children now.
We are not simply drawing near,
For though we reverence and bow .

This is the time we all prepare—
For everyone is God’s own heir.

2.
We do not stumble without cause.
We do not wander without course.
We do not carry only flaws,
For we draw power from the Source.

This is the time we all prepare—
For everyone is God’s own heir.

3.
We are not just the slaves of chance.
We are not only bound by fate.
We are not but pure happenstance,
For we may choose what to create.

This is the time we all prepare—
For everyone is God’s own heir.

Hymn Text: Seeds of Love

Title: Seeds of Love
Meter: 6 6 6 6 8 8

1.
Our words in anger sown
Will bear but bitter fruit.
For when this tree is grown,
We scarcely know the root .

Instead may ev’ry seed we sow
Be planted so that love may grow.

2.
When watered by the tears
Of bitterness, the seeds
Will bear but thorns and fears,
And other noxious weeds.

Instead may ev’ry seed we sow
Be planted so that love may grow.

3.
The longer that we leave
These seeds within the ground
The more they hurt, deceive,
And wrap themselves around.

Instead may ev’ry seed we sow
Be planted so that love may grow.

 

Hymn Text: Gathered to the Fold

Title: Gathered to the Fold
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

1. We gather to the Savior’s fold
All sheep who’ve gone astray
The strong and weak, the young and old
And show to them the way.

Unto the green, inviting place
Where they may drink and eat.
We act as instruments of grace
To make His fold complete.

2. We gather to the Savior’s flock
All sheep who’ve wandered far.
Though wolves and lions roar and mock,
We see them as they are—

As impotent as noisy waves
To turn us from our path
Our mighty Shepherd stands and saves
His precious sheep from wrath.

3. We gather to the Savior’s side,
All sheep that we can find.
To make our shepherd glorified
That he may bring and bind,

All sheep together in His sight
A single fold and field.
That they may graze and dwell in light,
Unto the Shepherd sealed.

Hymn Text: A Tapestry of Truth

Title: A Tapestry of Truth
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

1.
The Gospel is a tapestry
Of truth with many threads
That bind the pow’r of God to me
And those both living, dead.

How glorious its grand design!
With threads both dark and light.
Its patterns will exalt, refine,
Endow us with God’s might.

2.
The mortal world could never weave
These truths in such a way.
For many scheme and those deceive
Who in the darkness stay.

How glorious its grand design!
With threads both dark and light.
Its patterns will exalt, refine,
Endow us with God’s might.

3.
The Gospel ties in my strands
God’s purposes divine.
It binds in one His perfect plans,
Though it, His glory shines.

How glorious its grand design!
With threads both dark and light.
Its patterns will exalt, refine,
Endow us with God’s might.

Hymn Text: Do Not Fear, My Little Flock

Title: Do Not Fear, My Little Flock
Meter: 7 6 7 6 D

1.
Do not fear, my little flock
For God is on your side.
You are built upon my rock
My angels now abide.

Though it seems you are alone
My chariots of fire
Surround you as a wall of stone
To strengthen and inspire.

2.
Be not troubled, little flock
Though trials must still arise
You shall fall upon my rock
Though all the world despise.

Though it seems you are too weak,
You shall abide the day.
The Spirit through your voice shall speak,
And you shall find the way.

3.
Now rejoice, my little flock
Discard your own despair.
Rise and stand upon my rock
And raise my standard there.

Though it seems the world is strong
Its might shall pass away.
For sorrow shall give way to song.
When peace soon comes to stay.

Hymn Text: The Covenant Path

Title: The Covenant Path
Meter: 8 8 8 8

1.
The cov’nant path is ours to walk
For it will lead us home again.
We walk it as we act and talk
No matter where, no matter when.

2.
Through water, we are born anew
The Holy Ghost confirms us there.
These covenants, our whole life through.
Our souls for others first prepare.

3.
We take the priesthood and the task
To minister to Christ’s own sheep
His power is then ours to ask
As still these covenants we keep.

4.
At last, we take the offered gift
Within God’s holy place.
With sacred bonds that seal and lift
We take God’s purest grace.
