Lyrics from Relief Society Song Book, 1919, no. 48
1. High on the mountain top A banner is unfurled; Ye nations now look up; It waves to all the world; In Deseret’s sweet peaceful land— On Zion’s mount behold it stand. 2. For God remembers still His promise made of old, That He on Zion’s hill Truth’s standard would unfold! Her light should there attract the gaze Of all the world in latter days. 3. His house shall there be reared, His glory to display; And people shall be heard In distant lands to say, We’ll now go up and serve the Lord, Obey His truth, and learn His word. 4. For there we shall be taught The law that will go forth, With truth and wisdom fraught, To govern all the earth; Forever there His ways we’ll tread, And save ourselves with all our dead.
