LATTER-DAY SAINTS'

Sunday School Hymn Book.

No. 1. STARS OF MORNING, SHOUT
FOR J0Yl
(Song Book Page 9.)

1 Stars of morning, shout for joy!
Sing redemption's mystery;
Holy, holy, holy, cry,

And praise the Lamb.

2 Ethiopia, stretch thy band! Come ye tribes of every land, Countless as the ocean's sand l

To praise the Lamb.

3 Savior, let Thy kingdom come, Now the man of sin consume, Bring the blest millennium,

Exalted Lamb.

No. 2. THIS DAT WE COME BEFORE THEE, LORD.

(Song Book Page 10.)

1 This day we come before Thee, Lord,
To sing thy praise with sweet accord,

And now to Thee we pray,
Be Thou our steadfast hope and shield l
Help us the Spirit's sword to wield;

Protect us on life's way.

2 O Lord! may Israel do Thy willi
On Zioii's consecrated hill,

Thy name shall honored be,
By righteous ones, like lions bold,
As prophets anciently foretold,

Putting their trust in Theel

3 Reveal to all thy sov'reign might,
Thy truth and mercy, love and light;

Oh, then, we shall be blessed!
Lord, may we imitate Thy Son!
And when cur work on earth is done,

Enter into Thy rest!

Edtoard Hanham.

No. 3. LAND OF THE BLEST.
(Song Book Page 11.)

1 We sing of the land of the blest.
We talk of the Saints' home of rest,
Of its joys we are all impressed,

But what will it be to be tbere?

2 To share with the joys of that land, Shake each of our friends by the hand, And unite with the holy band,

That's what it will be to ba there.

3 Then strive, children, strive to meet there; Be fervent and constant in prayer, Then its heavenly light you'll share,

And know what it is to be there.

John K. Hall.

No. 4. NEARER, DEAR SAVIOR, TO THEE.

(Song Book Page 12.)

1 Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee,
Nearer, nearer to thee;
Ever I'm striving to be
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!

Trusting in Thee I confide. Hoping, in Thee I abide— Take, oh, take and cherish me, Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee!

2 Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee,
Nearer, nearer to Thee;
Proved by my trials I'll be
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!
Humbly I come to Thee now,
Earnest, I prayerfully bow—
Take, oh, take and cherish me,
Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee!

3 Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee,
Nearer, nearer to Thee;
Ever my anthem will be.
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!
Loving Thee, ever I pray,
Aid me Thy will to obey—
Take, oh, take and cherish me.
Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee!

4 Nearer, dear Savior, to Thee, Nearer, nearer to Thee;

Let me by holiness be
Nearer, yet nearer to Thee!
When all my trials are done,
When my reward I have won,
Take, oh, take and cherish me,
Nearer, dear Savior, to Theel

Joseph L, Townshend.
