Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
Hymn 264 C.M. 1. Lift up your heads, ye scattered saints, Redemption draweth nigh; Our Saviour hears the orphan's plaints, The widow's mournful cry. 2. The blood of those who have been slain For vengeance cries aloud: Nor shall its cries ascend in vain, For vengeance on the proud. 3. The signs in heaven and earth appear; And blood, and smoke, and fire; Men's hearts are failing them for fear; Redemption's drawing nigher. 4. Earthquakes are bellowing 'neath the ground, And tempests through the air; - The trumpet's blast with fearful sound, Proclaims the alarm of war. 5. The saints are scattered to and fro, Through all the earth abroad; The gospel trump again to blow, And then behold their God. 6. Rejoice, ye servants of our God, Who to the end endure; Rejoice, for great is your reward, And your defence is sure. 7. Although this body should be slain By cruel, wicked hands; I'll praise my God in higher strains, And on mount Zion stand. 8. Glory to God, ye saints rejoice, And sigh and groan no more, But listen to the Spirit's voice - Redemption's at the door.
