Lyrics (to the tune of Wellerman): 

 

The Savior of the world, He held the keys, 

of life and death and eternity,

He gave them to the men from Galilee, 

And said go ye fishermen go

 

Teach the world that the Son has come

To save mankind and make us one

One day when the work is done, 

He’ll come and call us home

 

They did their best to build His church

And offer all a second birth

They took the gospel through the earth

But soon the winds would blow 

 

That’s when the wolves crept in 

To stain the truth with lies and sin

Apostasy, it did begin 

and the priesthood could not flow

 

Though good men tried to make light last

A gospel darkness came to pass 

But God is love and He held fast

And soon the world would know

 

That Jesus speaks today

He is the truth the light the way 

He answers those who seek and pray 

And a kingdom he will grow

 

In 1820 Joseph Smith

Confused by religious politics

Asked the Lord which church was His

And to which one he should go

 

Then in a pillar of light, 

That descended slowly from the sky

He saw The Father and The Christ

And their answer filled his soul

 

They said “Joseph, join none of them

Our living church isn’t among men

Their lips draw near but their hearts pretend

And a new seed we will sow”

 

Joseph was called and told

A restoration would unfold

The Lord gave him the keys of old

And said “go young man go”

 

An angel later would reveal

An ancient record in a hill

That shows that God is speaking still 

Oh hear the trumpets blow

 

The hearts of saints the spirit filled

And holy temples they did build 

As a martyr Joseph would be killed

But the work would never slow 

 

Israel is gathered again

The heavens are opened unto men

We covenant now to follow Him



Till He comes and calls us home
