Hymn 192
6 5 8 5 5 8
1. Redeemer of Israel,
Our only delight,
On whom for a blessing we call,
Our shadow by day,
And our pillar by night,
Our king, our companion, our all.

2. We know he is coming,
To gather his sheep,
And plant them in Zion, in love;
For why in the valley
Of death should they weep,
Or alone in the wilderness rove?

3. How long we have wandered
As strangers in sin,
And cried in the desert for thee!
Our foes have rejoiced
When our sorrows they've seen,
But Israel will shortly be free.

4. As children of Zion
Good tidings for us;
The tokens already appear;
Fear not, and be just,
For the kingdom is ours,
And the hour of redemption is near.

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

Hymn 119
P.M.
1. Redeemer of Israel,
Our only delight,
On whom for a blessing we call;
Our shadow by day,
And our pillar by night,
Our king, our companion, our all.

2. We know he is coming
To gather his sheep,
And plant them in Zion, in love,
For why in the valley
Of death should they weep,
Or alone in the wilderness rove?

3. How long we have wandered
As strangers in sin,
And cried in the desert for thee!
Our foes have rejoiced
When our sorrows they've seen;
But Israel will shortly be free.

4. As children of Zion
Good tidings for us:
The tokens already appear;
Fear not and be just,
For the kingdom is ours,
And the hour of redemption is near.

5. The secret of heaven,
The myst'ry below,
That many have sought for so long,
We know that we know,
For the Spirit of Christ,
Tells his servants they cannot be wrong.

Lyrics from Relief Society Song Book, 1919, no. 16

1. Redeemer of Israel,

Our only delight,

On whom for a blessing we call,

Our shadow by day,

And our pillar by night,

Our King, our Deliv'rer, our all!



2. We know He is coming

To gather His sheep,

And lead them to Zion in love;

For why in the valley

Of death should they weep,

Or in the lone wilderness rove?



3. How long we have wandered

As strangers in sin,

And cried in the desert for Thee!

Our foes have rejoiced

When our sorrows they've seen,

But Israel will shortly be free.



4. As children of Zion,

Good tidings for us,

The tokens already appear;

Fear not, and be just,

For the kingdom is ours;

The hour of redemption is near.
