Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840

Hymn 177
6 7 6 7 D
1. Let us pray, gladly pray
In the house of Jehovah,
Till the righteous can say,
"O our warfare is over!"
Then we'll dry up our tears,
Sweetly praising together,
Through the great thousand years,
Face to face with the Saviour.

2. What a joy will be there
At the great resurrection,
As the saints meet in air,
In their robes of perfection;
Then the Lamb - then the Lamb,
With a God's mandatory,
Fills the world with his glory.

3. We can then live in peace,
With a joy on the mountains,
As the earth doth increase,
With a joy by the fountains,
For the world will be blest,
With a joy to rely on,
From the east to the west,
Through the glory of Zion.
