Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
1. Great is the Lord! 'tis good to praise
His high and holy name:
Well may the saints in latter days
His wondrous love proclaim.
2. To praise him let us all engage,
That unto us is giv'n:
To live in this momentous age,
And share the light of heav'n.
3. We'll praise him for our happy lot,
On this much favoured land -
Where truth and righteousness are taught,
By his divine command.
4. We'll praise him for more glorious things,
Than language can express,
The "everlasting gospel" brings,
The humble soul to bless.
5. The Comforter is sent again,
His pow'r the church attends -
And with the faithful will remain
Till Jesus Christ descends.
6. We'll praise him for a prophet's voice,
His people's steps to guide:
In this we do and will rejoice,
Tho' all the world deride.
7. Praise him, the time the chosen time,
To favour Zion's come:
And all the saints, from every clime,
Will soon be gathered home.
8. The opening seals announce the day,
By prophets long declared,
When all, in one triumphant lay,
Will join to praise the Lord.
