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

Hymn 234
L.M.
1. The happy day has rolled on,
The glorious period now has come;
The angel sure has come again
To introduce Messiah's reign.

2. The Gospel trump again is heard,
The truth from darkness has appeared;
The lands which long in darkness lay
Have now beheld a glorious day.

3. The day by prophets long foretold,
The day which Abraham did behold,
The day that saints desired long,
When God his strange work would perform.

4. The day when saints again should hear
The voice of Jesus in their ear,
And angels who above do reign
Come down to converse hold with men.

Lyrics from Latter-day Saints Psalmody, 1889

Hymn 1
1. The happy day has rolled on,
The truth restored is now made known,
The promised angel’s come again
To introduce Messiah’s reign.

2. The gospel trump again is heard,
The truth from darkness has appeared
The lands which long benighted lay,
Have now beheld a glorious day.

3. The day by prophets long foretold,
The day which Abra'm did behold
The day that Saints desired so long,
When God his strange work would perform.

4. The day when Saints again shall hear
The voice of Jesus in their ear,
And angels, who above do reign,
Come down to converse hold with men.

Lyrics from Relief Society Song Book, 1919, no. 19

1. The happy day has rolled on,
The truth restored is now made known,
The promised angel's come again
To introduce Messiah's reign.

2. The gospel trump again is heard,
The truth from darkness has appeared;
The lands, which long benighted lay,
Have now beheld a glorious day.

3. The day by Prophets long foretold,
The day which Abram did behold,
The day that Saints desired so long,
When God His strange work would perform.

4. The day when Saints again shall hear
The voice of Jesus in their ear,
And angels, who above do reign,
Come down to converse hold with men.
