Hymn Text: On Easter

Week of April 15th, 2018
Title: On Easter
Meter: 8 8 8 8
Topic: Easter

1.
On Easter, both our lives were saved,
The first, the vic’try o’er the grave.
The second, we are freed from sin,
If we but make the change within.

2.
On Easter, both our worlds were one,
The first, the world beneath the sun,
The second, heaven in its height,
Christ bridged the gulf with holy might.

3.
On Easter, both our parents came,
The first, was Adam, free from blame,
The second, Eve, now reconciled,
With all their children, undefiled.

4.
On Easter, both our parts restored,
The first, our bodies, as our Lord,
The second, spirits, now to be,
United through eternity.

Hymn Text: The Holy Ghost Attends

Title: The Holy Ghost Attends
Meter: 8 8 8 8
Topic: Easter

1.
Our spirits will not long survive,
Nor have the nourishment to thrive
Unless the Holy Ghost attends,
And walks beside us as our friends.

2.
We will succumb to Satan’s pow’r,
Unless we guard against the hour,
By taking of the Spirit’s sword,
Relying wholly on the Lord.

3.
Deep sorrow would oft pierce us through,
For what we say and think and do,
Is not enough our load to bear,
Unless the Spirit comforts there.

4.
Our wand’ring feet would go astray,
As we misplace the narrow way,
Unless we take the Spirit’s light,
To guide us through this latter night.

5.
Our sure companion, dearest friend,
The Spirit bears us to the end,
For safe within his tender care,
We banish sin and flee despair.

Hymn Text: On Both Sides of the Veil

Week of April 8th, 2018
Title: On Both Sides of the Veil
Meter: 8 6 8 6 8 8 8 6

1.
The Gospel message resonates
On both sides of the veil.
The Gospel message hopes creates,
On both sides of the veil.

The prophet’s words are swiftly shared.
The saints are strengthened and prepared.

The Gospel message resonates
On both sides of the veil.

2.
True ordinances show their pow’r,
On both sides of the veil.
The blessings of the priesthood flow’r,
On both sides of the veil.

On earth we labor in their stead,
We labor with our kindred dead.

True ordinances show their pow’r,
On both sides of the veil.

3.
The arms of Christ are reaching out,
On both sides of the veil.
The Father’s work we are about,
On both sides of the veil.

We work in concert, faithful, strong,
The two halves of salvation’s song.

The arms of Christ are reaching out,
On both sides of the veil.

Hymn Text: Behold the Man

Title: Behold the Man
Meter: 6 6 6 6 D

General Conference April 2018

1.
Behold, not only see
The holy Son of Man
Allow Him so to be,
The Champion of God’s plan,

Within your life and heart
Within your roof and wall,
Allow Him to impart
His charity to all.

2.
Behold, and do not think,
To simply turn away.
Without Him, we would sink,
And quickly go astray.

The world regards as naught,
His holy sacrifice,
But still for them He wrought,
The payment of sin’s price.

3.
Behold, and come at last,
Unto His wounded feet.
And to Him hold on fast,
In that reunion sweet.

For surely you will see,
That He beheld your pain,
And heard your humble plea,
And purified your stain.

Hymn Text: He Gave All that We Receive All

Title: He Gave All that We Receive All
Meter: 8 8 8 8

1.
He gave all that we receive all,
A ransom to pay justice’s debt,
A ransom from our mortal fall,
A ransom we must not forget.

2.
He gave all that we may hope for,
The promise of rising again.
The promise of life evermore,
The promise of shouting, “Amen!”

3.
He gave all that we might cross,
The gulf of our sorrow and sin.
The gulf of our death and loss.
The gulf of our shame from within.

Hymn Text: We Belong Unto Each Other

Title: We Belong Unto Each Other
Meter: 8 7 8 7 D

1.
We belong unto each other
Knit as one in unity
Ev’ry one is like a brother,
Or a sister unto thee.

If we would go unto Zion,
It will not simply appear.
If we would go unto Zion,
We must make a Zion here.

(Could be sung as a canon)

Hymn Text: What Will Your Seeking Find?

Title: What Will Your Seeking Find?
Meter: 6 6 6 6 8 8

1.
What will your seeking find?
To what truth are you blind?
What will you kneel and ask?
What is your holy task?

As Joseph knelt within the trees,
Seek wisdom there upon your knees.

2.
What will your pleading bring?
What songs will your heart sing?
What would you understand?
Which way has our God planned?

As Joseph knelt within the trees,
Seek wisdom there upon your knees.

3.
What would you fin’lly know?
What gifts will God bestow?
What storm should now be stilled?
Which promise be fulfilled?

As Joseph knelt within the trees,
Seek wisdom there upon your knees.
