Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1841

Hymn 155
1. "Give us room that we may dwell,"
Zion's children cry aloud:
See their numbers—how they swell!
How they gather like a cloud!

2. Oh how bright the morning seems!
Brighter from so dark a night:
Zion is like one that dreams,
Filled with wonder and delight.

3. Lo! thy sun goes down no more,
God himself will be thy light:
All that caused thee grief before
Buried lies in endless night.

4. Zion, now arise and shine!
Lo! thy light from heav'n is come!
These that crowd from far are thine;
Give thy sons and daughters room.
